Hi-Fructose Vol. 27 cover artist Erik Jones paints alluring figures that he juxtaposes with dynamic, abstract strokes of bright colors. He seeks to find the right balance between his realistic style of painting figures with abstraction in his work. Jones recently made his European debut with his latest body of work, titled "In Colour" at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome. The title makes a references to the vibrant colors that surround and enhance the intensity of his female figures, likened to a hurricane. With these new works, Jones deepens his exploration of gesture and abstraction to an almost chaotic effect.
