29 Android Jones pictorial work is one strain of a larger project that he calls Electro-Mineralist Art. Moving beyond the traditional organic vegetable and animal technologies of pencils ink and brushes Android takes up emergent technologies that are crystalline metallic electronic and digital in their materiality and aesthetic feel implicating a historical scheme that echoes the integral view of planetary evolution from physiosphere to biosphere from noosphere to theosphere this is where the techno-media of exhibition artworks have been by and large and as the artist says bound to or associated with the biologic. Android is classically trained in academic drawing and painting and this traditional art background is the foundation through which he bridges the knowledge of the past and brings it into the future. For a post-postmodern art of high noospheric and theospheric expression Android instead upgrades to more resonate noospheric vehicles where the crystalline or mineralist proper to the physiosphere is recovered as a marginalised inorganic principle for the artistic celebration of the energies of life. The content of these marvelous works ranges vastly from the cosmic to the micro from tantric beloved to sacred civics from expansions of consciousness to reconfigurations of our three bodies. The pictorial syntax is at the very least proper to a teal register a collage mode descending from synthetic cubism. Subtle radiance and causal voids abound throughout. Honouring the history of art the mystical projects of the later Salvador Dali come to mind Android taps into pre-modern modernist and post-modernist aesthetic idioms advancing an Electro-Mineralist Art as Integral Alchemy.
