The exhibition will be showing from THURSDAY 15 AUGUST 2013 - SATURDAY 7 SEPTEMBER 2013

Claude Jones is exhibiting a collection of seven new works, ranging from  drawing and collage to scuplture. Whilst the subject matter may seem disturbing, Claude employ's soft colours and decorative elements that belie the sinister narrative content of the work.
"Our instinctive childhood love of animals is endorsed in illustrated children’s books, movies, stories, toys and domestic pets yet whilst our warm affection for animals is fostered, our taste for animal products is simultaneously cultivated." - Claude Jones, 2013.
