Mary Jones's intricate, collaged paintings chart the journey of the mind. Both familiar and strange, Jone's work resemble maps populated with personas and places, both real and imagined. With the apropos title Coddiwompling Mary Jones invites the viewers "to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination."
