Gareth Jones, born 1965, UK

Gareth Jones is an artist interested in questions of style and taste, as well as the politics of identity. His work often engages with ideas of interior space or décor, creating elegant environments that can be inhabited by the viewer. Rooted in minimalist aesthetics, his structures are often sparse, incorporating everyday materials including magazine pages, Fablon, polystyrene, card, stainless steel and wood.

At Tate St Ives he brings together three works to create a highly charged and very concentrated space, responding to both the architecture of the building and the occasion of the exhibition.
