In her exhibition The Iron in the Earth painter and printmaker Katherine Jones brings together a portfolio of eight flower prints alongside new large-scale prints and intimate watercolours. A patch of earth holds the promise of growth and renewal. Bound between the space of an urban allotment and her studio, artist Katherine Jones has emerged with a new collection of images that touch on our primordial instincts. The pansy is held in our hearts, it is the simple open face and divided petal form that reflects our childhood innocence, speaks from Shakespeare of love potions, and is symbolically placed in the rhetoric of feminisation. A painterly crowd of pansy blooms pushes its faces forward. There is a playing of scale, from a tiny complete face, to an enlarged and fragmented petal form.
