Sarah Ann Jones
Sarah Jones’s work is grounded in dream imagery given form. As the dream moves from her heart into her hands -- whether through drawings on a page, clay, fiber, the camera lens, or a community engagement process -- the dream reveals its deeper layers and meanings. She says, "As each dream is worked -- sometimes over a period of years or decades -- the image works on me. It is a dance between me and the dream image." Sarah believes that dreams come to us always in the service of the Self and her goal in working with a dream as an artist is to connect with the archetypal power that flows through all of us. She says, "I think of it as a process of holding the tension between the light and the dark. I know I am ‘in the flow’ when I have held the space in such a way that something new can arise."
Sarah has been working with her dreams since 2004 and has a BA in Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin (1994) and a BFA from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) (2009).Her work has been exhibited at venues including The Houston Center for Photography, The Southwest School of Art, The Coppini Academy, UTSA, FotoSeptiembre, Luminaria, The Jung Center of Houston, and The Cloister at Abbey Rolduc, Kerkrade, the Netherlands.
