Olivia Jones’ latest exhibition titled New Bloom deepens her investigation of self. A departure from the soft, dreamlike colours of her near sell-out exhibition of 2022, this new series of works speak more loudly about living with mental health. 

Moving to a broader palette and now painting on rough hessian instead of canvas, Jones invites and looks for vibrancy to surface through the mix of glossy blacks and deep purples she mixes with the crushed Toodyay stones and quartz from her family’s rural property. These deeply textured and striking works serve as acts of resistance and symbols of resilience for all. 

Olivia Jones is an early career artist from Western Australia and holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from Curtin University.
