Jennie C. Jones is a native of Ohio, born in Cincinnati.
In this print, Jennie C. Jones uses formal elements—such as color, line, and shape—to evoke the essential qualities of jazz music. Drawing on minimalism, an art movement that relied on such stylistic elements and was largely dominated by white male artists, Jones’s work invites the viewer to consider the social implications of the arts. Here, various shades of red and overlapping rectangles create a sense of movement and syncopation that defined this genre of music, which was developed by Black artists.
