Mr. Jones and Me

Texas artist Otis Jones "combines multiple materials--both fine art and industrial--to produce nonrepresentational, meditative colorscapes. Intricate fields of color comprise layer upon layer of mixed media that have been built up, sanded down, painted, marked or otherwise manipulated. By continually adding and removing surface elements, the artist exposes the compositional strata, and thus a visual history of the work's evolution. The result is an invitingly tactile matrix of color, texture and line that becomes its own inclusive object." If you're wondering what exactly all that means, we're really no help, but we can tell you it looks a little like plywood.
