BILL JONES is an artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. Jones was a seminal figure in the 1970s conceptual photography scene in Vancouver, Canada, along with Ian Wallace, Christos Dikeakos, Jeff Wall, and Rodney Graham.
Jones’s work engages a range of subjects and methodologies from landscape photography and the interface of urban, exurban and wilderness environments to analogue and digital photographic experimentation. Over the years Jones has developed a number of unique photographic techniques including photo assemblages that combine color and black and white photography, cameraless silver prints made with multiple free-standing lenses and the production of digital imagery by playing and capturing video samples with the Vj program modul8.
Jones’ work has been shown widely in the US and internationally, including a mid-career retrospective, Bill Jones: 10 Years of Multiple-Image Narratives, at the International Center of Photography; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, Germany; Art Gallery of Ontario, Vancouver Art Gallery, PS1 Contemporary Art Center; The Brooklyn Museum; The Jewish Museum, NY; Rotunda Gallery; Sandra Gering Gallery, NY; Lombard-Freid Fine Arts, NY; Amy Lipton Gallery, NY; White Columns, NY; San Francisco MOMA; The High Museum, Atlanta; The Milwaukee Art Center; Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris; Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, UK.
