Andrew Mcneile Jones
Profile Andrew McNeile Jones graduated from Oxford University’s Ruskin School of Art, with a first in Fine Art, in the 1980’s. He then trained as a filmmaker, working in all areas of the film and television business. He produced and directed dramas, documentaries and commercials. He has shot in many countries around the world, and won numerous awards for his productions. Throughout this time he continued to paint, but in 2002 decided to leave the film business in order to be able to concentrate on his art. He now lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and young family. He has exhibited regularly since 2003, and his work is in numerous private collections and several galleries around the UK, and various other European countries. In 2007 he won the ‘Art Business Today’ first prize, and in 2008 won second prize in the ‘Artists and Illustrators’ Artist of the Year competition, in the Still Life category. He has been commissioned to produce paintings for Harrods department store, which now feature on some of their packaging. Apart from exhibiting regularly in galleries and at art fairs around the country, he has had solo shows in London and recently a two-person show in Paris. Statement My painting aims to capture a certain atmosphere in a moment of light and shadow and reflection. It is a cool, almost melancholy atmosphere, and sometimes may even hint at an off-stage narrative. The subject matter ranges from humble still lives, lit by raking sunlight, domestic interiors glimpsed through doorways and shutters, to occasional exteriors caught in the first or last light. It is the stuff of the everyday, given a new potency through oil paint. The style is figurative and detailed, without being slavishly photoreal; it is as much about the paint - the translation of the image - as the image itself.

It was a new idea, buying art online. It was a bit disconcerting not having seen the work for real but as we had no time to do it any other way we went for it. I was a bit worried that we would hate it when we saw it but it was in fact much as we expected.
However had that not been the case I didn't seen anywhere on your site what to do if the art work does not reach exepectation and whether you have a system for return and refund in that eventuality
Beautiful. I really love it.Submitted by Margaret W 22/05/2014
