“Angst” (ca. 1984)

“Stupendous” is perhaps the least I could possibly say about this ‘self portrait’ by Jones. She reported to Rob P that it was done while in the “grip of depression” (in the 1980s, Jones was between a divorce and the eventual gender transition that began in the late 1990s). She also said it was her ‘SCREAM,’ which is easy to believe.
Perhaps not too surprising, either: no digit image can do this piece justice.
