Wayson R. Jones' solo exhibition of recent paintings includes his Black President Series with works entitled "Covert Surveillance" and "Throw Your Hands Up." Using a limited palette of black, white and gray mixed from powdered graphite, charcoal and acrylic medium, and a process-driven approach, the artist explores dripping, pouring, glazing and scraping in order to build abstract paintings that also visualize associations between image, memory and emotion.
