Caroline PM Jones Jones is a British Artist who has spent much of her life living in Asia, Europe and Los Angeles. She has been painting portraits and landscapes for 30 years and sculpting in marble, bronze and clay for 16. Her studio and Dome home are at the very top of Saddle Peak in Topanga, which she says reminds her of her Bohemian life in Hong Kong where she lived near the Chinese fishing village of Shek - O. Stones and their presence have been a preoccupation of mine since I was a small child. Forever I've been fascinated with what is held within the stone, what stories or spirit or captured time is represented. Throughout history man has related to stones for tools, for art, for monuments, for ancestor worship and celestial notations. It is with these precepts that I have begun to explore this new series based on nocturnal journeys Landscapes of the Mind, Chinese Scholar stones and Dreamscapes. The first public exhibition of which will be at the Topanga Canyon Gallery 3/26-4/19 with the opening reception March 28th 4-7pm. "In the last few years I have expanded my sculptural skills into creating Fine Art Memorials and monuments. Personal remembrances for those we love, ascending places and sitting stones, portraits and embodiments of spiritual beliefs. I work with traditional and non-traditional cemeteries, green spaces and public areas and create unique memorials to remember those that are loved."
