Closing Sunday: CASSANDRA C. JONES “Lightning Drawings” on ARTSY

PREVIEWED: @MarkMooreGallery is pleased to present nine new works from Cassandras C. Jones‘ acclaimed LIGHTNING DRAWINGS in an exclusive ARTSY online exhibition opening September 14, 2022.


Cassandra C. Jones is a remix artist and storyteller. She uses digital photography to create collage works, large-scale installations, and videos that spin a narrative and present a prismatic reflection of our contemporary, consumerist, technology-based lifestyles. Jones does this to offer a space of possibility, discovery, and growth. 

In a nod to traditional mark-making techniques, the series entitled “Lightning Drawings” connects photographs of lightning bolts, end to end, to create continuous lines that are distinctively wavy, tapered, scribbled, delicate, dashed, etc. (referring to the circles).  I also use this approach of “line quality” to make large-scale drawings of urban animals in mid-air. Existing within a pile of photographs, dogs and rabbits appear to be leaping through time, space, and different rural and suburban locals. This has become an analogy for the way I navigate through the sea of photos that I collect and utilize.

Cassandra C. Jones received her BFA from California College of Art and her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. Her work has shown in venues throughout the US and Europe, including Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA, and Prix Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria. Jones has taken part in Invitational Only residencies at The Drake Hotel in Toronto, ON, the Egon Schiele Art Centrum in Český Krumlov, CZ, Virginia Common Wealth University in Richmond, VA, and Taft Gardens Nature Preserve in Ojai, CA. Recently, her video work was purchased and included in three exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, TX. And nominated by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santa Barbara, Jones received a commission to design two tile murals at Paseo Nuevo Mall that went up in 2020.
