18 x 20 inch collage
Newspaper photos and magazine clippings. Images sourced from a variety of beauty, fashion, and pop culture magazines such as Essence, Share, National Geographic, Life, Fortune, and XXL. Through the chaos, two young children walk as leaders, not rivals. Their goals are all for the liberation of their people. They do not wish to compete.
Aaron Jones is a multi-disciplinary visual artist based in Toronto. His practice surrounds ideas of self-reflection and character-building, as a way of finding peace. Often using found images, videos and lens-based media, he works with different forms of collage to build characters and spaces that reflect upon the complexities and nuances of his own upbringing. Recent exhibitions include Propped at Oakville Galleries (2017), Under Mine presented by the BAU Collective at 187 Gallery (2017), Ragga NYC at Mercer Union (2018), Bending Towards the Sun at YYZ Outlet (2019) and From the Ground Up at NIA Centre for the Arts (2019). Upcoming and current exhibitions include Three-Thirty at Doris McCarthy Gallery for the 2020 CONTACT Photography Festival and a solo exhibition at UGLY Gallery in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated with a BA from OCADU in 2018 and is an active member of the BAU Collective. His work is included in the collections of Ryerson Image Centre and Wedge Curatorial Projects.
