|This latest exhibition of works by Shane Jones focuses on racecourses and horse racing. |
Shane grew up in Mordialloc in the late 60s when the Epsom training track and surrounding stables were in full swing. He spent two years as a jockey in his late teens followed by four years as a track rider before deciding to pursue his artistic talent. He has been drawing horses and jockeys ever since.
Shane has spent the past four years visiting race tracks across the state including Caulfield, Ballarat, Mildura and, of course, Flemington, to paint their grounds, as well as the horses, jockeys and visitors that populate them.
