AUGMENTED REALITY



CHROMAKAT is Angie Jones’ submission to the “Buy Art Save Kittens” group show that opened on Saturday, Aug. 26. All proceeds from the exhibit are reinvested back into the South LA-based nonprofit Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats to secure food and medical care for the city’s feral cat population. This show marks the fifth iteration of “Buy Art Save Kittens” and the first showing at CHG. The fundraiser will satisfy the tastes and budgets of a broad scope of collectors with graffiti, street art, prints, illustrations and paintings, all featuring, unsurprisingly, cats. All artwork featured in the show is donated directly by the artists, spurred by a love for catkind.   Legends, graffiti artists, Instagram favorites, and more are coming together for a worthy cause. Proceeds from this event go directly towards helping our furry friends in need.


This piece was inspired by Angie’s Cat named “Bacon” after the famous painter. The digital piece has Augmented Reality that triggers off a QR Code to spring forth a cat that is all seeing.  No matter what angle the eyes follow you.

TEXTME" is Angie Jones’s contribution to the "Art Collector Starter Kit" tenth annual group show at Corey Helford Gallery. This geometric oil painting, rendered on a wood panel, delves into the intricate tapestry of communication in the modern age. An extra bit of fun for this piece included AUGMENTED REALITY.

Once a mobile device is pointed at the QR Code and the painting, a portal opens to reveal an important text message sent at 2:21 am. A text appears: “I love you” on the left, but on the right, the reply is “Chill.” In a world of fragmented communication, “Text Me” is a profound commentary on our digital interactions.

In a world where words flow in a digital stream, where tone, cadence, intention, and even punctuation are often left to the imagination, "Text Me" stands as a profound commentary on our contemporary modes of interaction. The painting captures the pulse of our era, where the relentless ping of incoming messages eternally disrupts the rhythm of language. "Text Me" is more than a painting; it's an invitation to engage, collect, and embrace the evolving language of art in the digital age.
