Kelly Kristin Jones
While often starting with the camera, Kelly Kristin Jones’ work utilizes various methods and materials to survey new concepts. Primarily interested in our relationship to environment, Jones explores how we are implicated and reflected in something so familiar it has become nearly invisible. Shifting perspective, renegotiating space, and recording sights, Jones studies the utter strangeness of space and movement in urban areas.
Kelly Kristin Jones earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2012) and currently teaches at Georgia State University. Jones is the recipient of a number of prestigious awards including the Forward Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award (2015), the Southwest Airlines Arts and Social Engagement Prize (2013), the MINT Gallery Leap Year Artist Award (2013), the James Weinstein Memorial Fellowship (2012), The Union League and Civic Arts Foundation Prize (2011, 2012) and the Municipal Art League Fellowship (2012).
