Thea Jones
September 28, 2020 - October 31, 2020

I am an interdisciplinary artist. My practice fluctuates between where I am and the trajectory from where I have come, continually hauling and sorting through the baggage as I go. Video, mending, installation and small iterations of performance have been used to observe the folly or fallacy of everyday living. I attempt to make work in a place that either exacerbates a task, proclaims to solve problems with miniature sized solutions or stimulates the obvious with volume.
