The Arthur Roger Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by Kevin Jones. The exhibition will be on view from March 12th – April 16th, 2011 at the Arthur Roger Gallery, located at 432 Julia Street. The gallery will host an opening reception to meet the artist on Saturday, March 12th, from 6 to 8 pm.
In this exhibition Kevin Jones presents work that conceptually examines systems found in scientific investigation, specifically the periodic table of elements. He reconfigures the structure that Dmitri Mendeleev discovered in 1869 and seeks to question our understanding of the physical world and undermine scientific authority.
Included in this exhibition is his video, The Culture Of Logic, which builds upon the structure of the periodic table combining moving images that when seen together fluctuate between meaning and nonsense. The exhibition also features Chemtrail, a piece consisting of aluminum panels with graphic images digitally printed on them intended to represent the building blocks of visual images juxtaposed with various elements.
Kevin Jones was born in 1969 in Huntsville, Alabama and currently resides in New Orleans, Louisiana. Kevin received his BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, a MFA in painting from the University of Texas at Austin, and a MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University.
Jones 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 Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has taught at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, The University of Oregon, and The University of Pennsylvania. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Newcomb Art Department at Tulane University.
