"Receptive Abstract Patternism" is a new type of art distinguished by the artist, Rod Jones, who receives conscious and sub-concious signals and stimuli to create an image independent of common form, held together by the continuity and comfort of pattern. Considering the esoteric nature of Receptive Abstract Patternism it often provides a visual and intellectual treat for the viewer.
Like snowflakes no two paintings are like, but yet, each one is in common with the other. Structured yet fluid. Each is fragile but strong. You remove one square or one element and they simply fall apart. They are immensely influenced by their surroundings and the light that falls on them. In one moment they can be soothing and meditative and the next deconstructed, energetic and modern.
"You have to live with one of my paintings and share your emotions with it…and it will breathe its own life into yours."
