Art League Houston presents "A Way [A Will]," a new site-specific installation by Ronald Llewelyn Jones in the Sculpture Garden. Jones’ artwork explores barriers between creatives and audiences while including conversations regarding individuals and their communities. Jones challenges each individual’s respective perceptions in regards to the availability of access and agency within normative societal structures.

"A Way [A Will]" exists as a tangible illustration of an individual’s trajectory through a life cycle. Acrylic sheets hover overhead, illuminated by a stand of LED filament. The light force moves through the field of acrylic sheets which are representations of the hidden costs and glass ceilings we encounter in life.

The sculpture presents a physical manifestation of a gilded path, inviting the audience to witness the hidden parts of an individual's journey. Following the path through a system of ricochets, deflections, penetrations and moments of circumnavigation, it is possible to see how obstacles inhibit, reinforce or disengage a range of trajectories.

This artwork offers an opportunity for self-reflection upon our obligation to members of a global society. It exists as an abstraction that allows an individual to see themselves and also others as part of the same journey, traversing a similar structured network of obstacles.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 14.
