Cavalier Galleries is pleased to present this unique group of new works by contemporary painter, Joel Carson Jones. As a master of trompe l'œil, Joel Carson Jones captures ordinary objects and brings them to life in a way in which the viewer cannot distinguish between painting and three-dimensional object. He creates a heightened sense of reality, while employing classical artistic elements of form and design.
His tremendous skill in painting detailed compositions with a fresh approach to the still-life genre has earned Jones the honor of being named a “Living Master” by the prestigious Art Renewal Center. Many of his works have been awarded prizes in exhibitions held by the Art Renewal Center, and other prominent institutions such as the Butler Institute of American Art, and the Salmagundi Club.
Joel Carson Jones was born in Pennsylvania in 1975, where he still lives and works. He began his studies at Marywood University, and eventually went on to study with his contemporary Anthony Waichulis, who founded an atelier in Pennsylvania dedicated to this classical style of painting.
In addition to these new paintings, we are pleased to present a selection of works by Joel Carson Jones which are currently being offered from a private collection:
