Pathogenesis is a solo exhibition by Cat Jones of works in oil, graphite, pen & ink, pastel and mixed media, completed between April of 2012 and April of this year. Paintings and drawings trace the strange energy of pathology, winding inward and outward from some hidden secret source. Inspired by cancer and death of a lover, the figures reflect the beauty and grace of body and soul under siege, the inexorable process of change and transformation, the unsteady balance between life and death, and that closely guarded truth that can only ever be appreciated fully by someone who has known great heartbreak.
