Todd Jones was born in Tallahassee, FL, and is currently based in Ohio. As an experimental artist, Todd explores the boundaries between contemporary painting and sculpture.
Todd is interested in construction-based materials, by repurposing how they are used as consumer products. He creates a visual language which challenges the viewer’s association and perception of these materials. Todd is interested in material culture and transformative labors through the use of modest mediums contrasting with the investments of work by using meditative repetition and mass production.
A lot of his work explores the serendipitous phenomena from the processes of painting and expands them into sculptural skins. These skins, in turn, are superimposed on undulating three-dimensional forms derived from natural elements. Together, they occupy an unstable liminal space between nostalgia and our precarious future.
Todd received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with a double major in studio art and psychology from Florida State University. He is currently living and working in Athens, Ohio and is an MFA candidate in Painting + Drawing and working on an MAA in Arts Administration at Ohio University. Todd has been an artist-in-residence at Studio 209 in Thomasville, GA and attended the Summer Painting and Sculpture Intensive at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. He has had solo shows at Wild Goose Creative and the City Center Gallery at the Urban Arts Space in Columbus, OH.
