Artist's Insight with Jonathan Jones

Hear Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones share insights into the development of barrangal dyara (skin and bones) and the ideas that have inspired this ambitious new work.


Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones creates site-specific installations and interventions into space that use light, subtle shadow and the repetition of shape and materiality to explore Indigenous practices. Jones seeks to represent both the traditional and contemporary by working with a particular site’s historical usage and current vision, which are inextricably linked. At the heart of Jones’ practice is the act of collaboration and many projects have seen him work in conjunction with other artists and communities to develop outcomes that acknowledge local knowledge systems and connect the site with local concerns.
