UNITED KINGDOM - MACHYNLLETH - MARY LLOYD JONES


Mary Lloyd Jones is a well established and popular artist in Wales. She has exhibited widely since the mid 1960s, in Wales, elsewhere in Britain and internationally.
She was admitted to the Honorary Degree of Doctor of the University of Wales in November 2008. She has been one of three artists from Wales selected to take part in a touring exhibition in China in the Spring of 2009. This project is supported by Wales Art International. She has also been invited to take part in the Wales Smithsonian Festival in Washington DC in the summer of 2009, supported by Wales Art International and the Welsh Assembly Government.
Of her work she writes "My aim is that my work should reflect my identity, my relationship with the land, an awareness of history, and the treasure of our literary and oral traditions. I search for devices that will enable me to create multilayered works. This has led to my involvement with the beginnings of language, early man made marks and the Ogham and Bardic Alphabets."
