Sheridan Jones is an artist and self-portrait photographer. Her instinctively gifted manner of perceiving reality, and her playful dark and meticulously composed self-portraits, reveal the mysteries of making and unmaking of identity.
There is something fundamentally significant about Sheridan’s work, both in its geographical momentum and in its intellectual and creative capacity to explore and challenge the meandering ways of shaping, unshaping and reshaping the female identity.
Notable for its energy, spontaneity and freedom, Sheridan’s work whispers tales of dreams, of hopes, of joys, of tears, of life, of times past, of things to come and everything in between. It announces the rebellious possibility of simply looking at ourselves and the world around us from a different perspective.
“This is what is within me and I feel I am simply funnelling out these possible women that might have been or could have become and who were looking for a chance to exist if just on paper, as themselves”. - Sheridan Jones
This show is a continuation of the exploration of her internal phantoms. A revelation of the hidden, the breaking of personal and social taboos as the alternate is revealed.
