Kevin Jones, Associate Professor, Digital Arts
Kevin has degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University (BFA Painting and Printmaking), The University of Texas at Austin (MFA Printing) and Yale University (MFA Graphic Design).
Over the past four years within Kevin's work, one can see transitions and synthesis in media including painting, video, physical computing, and more recently, 2-dimensional digital prints. Through this synthesis of media, the conceptual investigation of the natural world through charts, diagrams and systems is a constant theme. Early work used solar energy to power a fictional television station to recent work that uses sensors to create an interactive video installation that questions entropy.
Kevin has exhibited throughout the United States, Asia and Europe and his work has been featured in ID Magazine, Idea Magazine, Neural Online, The New York Times, and MSNBC. Most recently he has exhibited his work at the Thompson Gallery at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, Stasjon K in Sandnes, Norway, Ginza Geijutsu Laboratory in Tokyo Japan and the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur, Texas. Kevin was recently awarded The Louisiana Division of the Arts Artist Fellowship for 2009-2010, the Louisiana ArtWorks, Studio Residency Program 2009-2010, AIR, Residency, Stasjon K, Sandnes, Norway 2008, the KAT Fund, Houston Contemporary Art Museum 2006 and two Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowships in 1995, 2000.
He has taught at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, The University of Oregon, The University of Pennsylvania and currently is an associate professor in the Newcomb Art Department at Tulane University.
