Jody Christian was born in Greer, South Carolina, and is currently studying towards an MFA in Greensboro, North Carolina. Earlier, she received a BA in studio art from College of Charleston.
Christian operates on the principle that domestic spaces and how these are decorated speaks loudly about the thinking process and other cultural, familial, and environmental factors of its inhabitants. Her drawings of these interiors are intended to reveal certain personal geometry and explore her relation to spaces on paper, lifting the ordinary into art.
The memories evoked by important objects and the awkwardness that she feel in relation to her rooms expresses itself through warped perspective. ‘The process of drawing connects my thoughts with tangible objects and spaces and my pieces become dense meditations embedded with the process of seeing and sensing,’ explains Christian.
Her work has been exhibited across the east coast of the United States and was included in the 2011 MFA Annual edition of New American Paintings.
