About this event

In “Drawing Energy: The Logic of Madness,” artist Guy Jones explores art’s ability to transcend and heal by tapping into what he calls the “logic of madness.” Jones draws directly onto the surface of animal skulls and bones, tree fungus, turtle shells, and gourds, experiencing a deep spiritual kinship with the natural objects that serve as his canvases.

At first glance, his work might seem macabre, but Jones has a different perspective: “Some people see something dead when they see a skull, but I see something living,” Jones remarked. “Everything has energy.”

Throughout his artwork, Jones employs many of the philosophies and beliefs of the Cherokee Indian nation, thanks to his personal Cherokee lineage and the many years he studied with a Cherokee shaman.
