Elfyn Jones

Elected to RCA 1983 (reinstated 2005)

Born in Wrexham 1939, Jones studied in Wrexham and Cardiff. His work tends to express tension, anxiety and difficulty. It is hard to categorise being a combination of abstract, figurative, landscape and portraiture. The handling of the paint is always fluid and sure, lending the images a peculiar beauty whilst also allowing the viewer to feel some of the struggle they represent.
