Nicholas Jones was born in 1974 in the United Kingdom. Exhibiting widely since 1998 Jones is a Melbourne based artist who uses books and paper to question the future of the written word. His work belongs to Australian and international collections.
Using books seen to have reached the end of their life by others, Nicholas’s work is as much about process as it is about the form - "these books were conceived, born, loved, stored, discarded, found anew, studied, cut, folded and reborn." Thoughtfully cut, arranged and folded by hand, these books start a new life as sculptures.
