Steep Descent is a new exhibition from Locust Jones. After completing two residencies - one at William Kentridge's print studio in Johannesburg, South Africa and the other in Hill End, New South Wales, Jones has created a new body of work consisting of linocuts, etchings and ceramics. Using the thriving atmosphere of Johannesburg as stimulus, Jones immersed himself in the foreign environment and created prints reflecting on his experiences of the streets. The ceramic works, created in Hill End in collaboration with potter Lino Alvarez, who has previously worked with the likes of John Olsen and Elisabeth Cummings, allowed Jones to take his drawings to a three dimensional surface, scratching and painting into the wet clay.
