Large swaths of black ink against white paper convey a stark abstract landscape in this painting by Theodore J. Jones (1938-). Washes of red and blue appear in clearings on a hill-like shape. At its base, one can imagine waves lapping up on shore and, below, blue water swirling into whitecaps. Jones grew up in New Orleans where he attended Xavier University before earning graduate degrees in art from Michigan State University and the University of Montana. Military service brought him to metropolitan Washington, DC in the early to mid-1960s, when he executed this artwork and three others in the Anacostia Community Museum’s collection (2002.0002.0009, 2002.0002.0010, 2002.0002.0011). Known for printmaking, sculpture, and photography, the African American artist taught art at Florida A&M, Tennessee State University, and Fisk University.
