David Rhys Jones trained at Central Saint Martins and has exhibited widely, including The V&A Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts and the Courtauld Institute. He was joint winner of the Jerwood Prize in 2010, and his work is held in many private and public collections, including the Tate (Artist's Book Collection). Informed by journeys or site-specific locations; they are recorded using photography and drawings. The image becomes an object, a hybrid of sculpture and photography. The artworks record the experience of the location and also create a narrative of the walk.
