Karin Hodgin Jones
Since 2008
Works in Easthampton, Massachusetts United States of America

Hodgin Jones was raised in Zionsville, Indiana, a densely wooded agricultural community that was absorbed and suburbanized by the sprawl of Indianapolis during her adolescence. She divided her time between roaming the wilderness around her family’s modest farm and experiencing the great privileges afforded her through the school system of an increasingly affluent suburb. Reconciling the difference between existing equally but separately in those two worlds cultivated an interest in examining what connects the two sides of a polemic. Identifying and elaborating the lines that bind, mediate or transition between opposites remains the central interest in her research and projects to this day.

She has exhibited throughout the U.S. and has received funding and support for a variety of projects. Exhibitions venues include: Lightwell Gallery, Norman, OK; I Space Gallery, Chicago, IL; Krannert Art Museum, Champaign, IL; Mass Gallery in Austin, TX; New Visions Gallery, Salt Lake City, UT; Gittins Gallery, Salt Lake City, UT. In 2005 her work was featured as one of the 9 collections in the Ninth Letter Art and Literary Journal online. In 2003, she lectured and exhibited her work on Optical Sound at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.
She received her MFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign in 2008 and her BFA is from the University of Utah. She currently lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri and Urbana, IL.
