Sam Jones IV

“Through movement, passionate colors and rich textures I work to capture the true depth and complexity of wine and dance. While traditional paintings of dance offer the viewer only one view or perspective of the moment, my paintings explore a 360-degree experience. Through multiple angles, different perspectives and imposed layers I capture the true passion of dance.”
-Sam Jones IV

“I first encountered Jones’ artwork and was taken back at the depth of color and beauty captured in his paintings. I was immediately drawn into the paintings, not only by the subject, but also by the passion you can clearly see on the faces of his dancers. You can’t help but wonder what the dancers are thinking, how they are so focused on their steps and yet they seem effortless.”
-Jo Anna Ordóñez, Insite Magazine.
