Zebedee Jones (born March 12, 1970) is an English abstract painter.

Life and work[edit]

Zebedee Jones was born in London. He attended Camberwell College of Arts, Norwich University of the Arts and Chelsea School of Art and Design graduating in 1993. The following year Jones's paintings appeared in Unbound: possibilities in painting at the Hayward Gallery.[1] His work is in several public collections [2] including Tate,[3][4] National Galleries of Scotland [5] and the Arts Council of Great Britain Collection.[6]

Jones's work consists of monochrome abstracts, which have been described as adjacent to Neo-conceptual art [7] or belonging to the Process Art tradition.[8] However, above Jones is called one of a generation of artists who spearheaded a move away from conceptual, installation and video art in favour of a ‘return to painting’. His canvases are stretched over deep frames. The paint appears scraped on in layers, usually horizontal. The dragged surface of the canvas rather than being smooth has varying degrees of surface incident.[9]

Zebedee Jones lives and works in London.[10][11]
