Locust Jones Statement:
My drawing practice is based on the media for stimulus and effect. Without media coverage, comment and analysis I wouldn’t make the art I make. The major themes in my drawing: War, Globalisation, Politics, The Environment are all themes which dramatically rehearse the basic question of human justice and injustice. My connection to these themes occurs through the mediums of television, Internet, radio and newspapers. My practice began with printmaking and moved onto working directly onto paper with ink and graphite. Recently I have been experimenting with ceramics as a surface to draw onto.
