In 2013 Jules Buck Jones signed the edition of 10 ten etchings and a few color trial proofs. The title that Jules gave to the 44″ x 12″ etching is “Continental Divide.” Jules explained that he drew his inspiration for the etching from his time in Costa Rica. At one point he stood at the continental divide which of runs through the Monteverde Cloud Forest and Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve of Costa Rica, one foot on the Pacific side and one on the Atlantic, surrounded by the dense cloud forest. Six impressions remain of the edition.

Two long narrow plates were prepared and Jules drew the intricate images on the plates for a deep etch.  The two plates are designed to print as a diptych on one sheet of paper making the final image 40″ x 4.”  He chose to print using a chine colléd Thai chiri paper and a cool black ink.


The Artist

Jules Buck Jones

Austin artist Jules Buck Jones draws, with an acute confidence, graphic fantastical images of hybridized animal forms. Influenced by ecological and biological concerns, Jones creates imagery of bizarre, fantastic happenings in nature, using the past, present and future as backdrops, mythology, fact, and fiction as fodder, and the animal kingdom as the vehicle.
