The Art of Line Exhibition

Tuesday 4th April - Wednesday 6th September 2023

On show inside The Stables Café.

The Art of Line brings together a remarkable series of new works on paper by artist Myrica Jones (b.1966) in her first major solo exhibition in the UK, in collaboration with Zuleika Gallery, a local gallery in nearby Woodstock.

Escaping challenges facing her family in 2018, Jones picked up a pen and began to draw. Since then, she has amassed a graphic series of ink works on paper that has led to her becoming a highly esteemed artist in Oxfordshire and a prize-winning member of the Oxford Arts Society.

Her extraordinarily steady hand methodically draws individual lines which build up over time. The lines according to Jones ‘simply flow’ using fluid linear movements and adjusting pressure to add tone and depth to the image.


Inspired by Henry Moore and Rodin, as well as by contemporary sculptors, including Ruth Asawa, Mariko Kusumoto and Vittorio Lavazzo, Jones’s work echoes the simple patterns and shapes found in nature as well as more figurative elements from yoga and contemporary dance. She enjoys creating amusing compositions and contortions and exploring the comical value of her subjects in space, whilst her recent botanical works have allowed her to take her love of sculptural form further with the addition of needlework in relief.

Original works are also available in limited edition prints produced by King and McGaw.
