  Artist statement for three paintings above: These paintings are about place, the parched hills, the blue green lakes, the wide vistas. But they are also about mystery, about “out-there-ness”, and – most of all – they question the part we play in these landscapes – November 2013 The following five paintings were exhibited at  Ceres Wines and Gallery, Bannockburn Central Otago, September 13 to October 17:

  Artist statement for Brave Odyssey series: This new series of paintings follows a narrative. While previously in my work I looked for solace in created “scenarios” populated by familiar objects, as the world becomes increasingly chaotic and the speed of change accelerates my paintings begin to describe journeys striking out into the unknown territory of the future. The  key symbol – a suitcase – evokes for me firstly a hesitant onlooker/questioner and, finally, an adventurer: optimistic or foolhardy? The paintings pose questions about where we are going and what course is navigable. They ask the big questions: what is out there? What does the future hold for our planet? Where will our odyssey take us?       –  Sept  2013 Opening night at Ceres Wines and Gallery, Bannockburn Central Otago, September 13 to October 17: Exhib opening

Artist Statement for Out Look: Simple spaces and simple objects and the relationship between them form the vocabulary I use in my paintings to conjure a tension between the familiar world we inhabit and experience and the world at large. Previously in my work I looked for solace in these created “scenarios” populated by familiar symbols. As the world becomes increasingly chaotic and the speed of change accelerates my paintings question where we are going: What is the outlook? – Philippa Jones, 2 July 2013
