BIO

  • Art Practice

Tod Jones is a UK based artist whose multidisciplinary practice is concerned with creating impermanent installations that act as an ephemeral event. These events are photographed as a form of documentation and the images often become their own branch of work.

 

These installations are created with a ritualistic preparing of the space for which the work will rest. Simple materials such as paint dust, tape, wood and fabrics are commonly used.

 

Research and Interests: Architecture, Contemporary Sculpture, Installation, Photography and Philosophy.

 

In 2019 Tod completed a Residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall.

 

The residency was awarded at the earlier 2018 MA Degree Show which was also exhibited at The New Art Gallery Walsall. Whilst on the residency Tod created a large-scale floor installation which remained in the public entrance of the gallery for a short time. He managed their Instagram page as an 'artist takeover' to show current work to the galleries audience online. Engaged with multiple public visitors to the gallery and organised an open studio event during his last weekend in the gallery to exhibit his work produced in-situ.    

In 2020 he's worked as an Artist on the Arts Drop Project for the University of Wolverhampton and ASPIRE to HE.
