Destruction Derby Dreamland
From the venue:
Thomas Deans Fine Art is pleased to present “Destruction Derby Dreamland”, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Atlanta-based artist Evan Jones. The exhibition will be on view from June 10 to July 8, 2023, with an opening reception on Saturday 10 June, from 5 to 7 pm.
Evan Jones is known for his colorful and imaginative paintings that combine elements of history, pop culture, and Southern identity. His previous exhibition at Thomas Deans Fine Art, “Country Store”, was a critical success that received a glowing review by Felicia Feaster in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. In that show, Jones explored the themes of rural life, nostalgia, and Americana through a series of paintings that referenced European history painting, Nascar racing, folk art, and tattoo design.
In his new exhibition, “Destruction Derby Dreamland”, Jones continues to challenge and delight the viewers with his playful and irreverent approach to painting.
