The title Zones de//of Turbulencessets the tone for Frank Jons’ exhibition. The artist describes his work as “a physical engagement with painting. A constant struggle where anger coexists and clashes with tenderness, sadness, love and happiness. I’m looking down on the canvas, I’m walking around it, I become one with it.”
Frank Jons has been living and working in Luxembourg since 2001. Although he studied accounting, he decided to make his childhood dream come true and devote his life to painting in 1996. He gained recognition on the Luxembourg art scene in 2008 after receiving the Pierre Werner prize. Contrasting hues are the hallmark of Frank Jons’ visual experiments. The result is the grand orchestrations of colour that have characterised his art for the last decade. Displayed at BIL’s Galerie Indépendance, his latest paintings impress with their structure and captivating, transformative power. The eye is immediately drawn to the dynamic lines and colourful explosions.
Frank Jons’ Zones de//of turbulences exhibition is yet another example of BIL’s dedication to promoting art and culture. For more than 20 years, the Galerie Indépendance has hosted Luxembourg’s most celebrated artists. This commitment, alongside innovation, education and health, is at the heart of its corporate social responsibility policy.
Zones de Turbulences is open to the public on business days from 23 February until 1 June 2018 (8am to 6pm) at Galerie Indépendance, route d'Esch 69, Luxembourg.
