Contemporary Art


Blog written by Sarah Jones of Jones Gallery + Studio. News from her studio, discussions of process, and thoughts on art + design. 


Montmartre was one of our favourites. Full of stairs, graffiti, oddball sculptures and art installations. I also made a pilgrimage to Le Bateau-Lavoir, art studio and residence of numerous famous 20th-century artists and writers (um…Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Modigliani, etc. etc…!!). 

I would move there and absorb the great art tradition, but my Pip, the Dog-King of Sloth, could never handle all the stairs. I would have to leave him at the bottom of the hill at the Moulin Rouge, scandalous.
