Critique of Art Painting by Fay Jones Very insightful great paper Critique of Body Fires Artist Fay Jones a veteran of the Seattle art community currently has on display works of acrylic paintings spanning the last twenty years of her career The exhibition Fay Jones A 20 Year Retrospective can be viewed at the Museum of Art WSU This paper will focus on her triptych painting Body Fires A painting that portrays a dream like and imaginative world full of color Jones imagines couples sailors and boxing that inhabit the enigmatic and nostalgia of the dream world In this critique I will attempt to express the symbols styles and emotions I perceived while viewing Body Fires Each of the rendered subjects is a symbol an iconographic whole for a selected idea in the artists visual vocabulary Some of her figures look as if they were painted on glass then shattered and cracked others are contained within a world of expanded possibilities The artist visualizes and creeps into a fantasy where one might not want to return The adversity I find in this painting is overwhelming in the first frame the sailor is lying down dreaming of a true love a woman he wishes to be with the fire consumes is inner body and soul ascending into his dream The second frame has a man contemplating his life for him to face the future he needs to acknowledge the past
