About Jody


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.

THIS REALLY GOOD. I LOVE IT

Breathtaking.

THIS TAKES ME BACK TO WHEN I WAS 15yrs.OLD, IN SEWARD ALASKA, MY FIRST TIME I WAS GOING TO BE AWAY FROM MY FAMILY, IT REMINDS ME OF TAKING THE 1ST. STEP TO BEING AN ADULT... SO INSPIRATIONAL...

Peaceful Welcoming
Waiting for the family to return from vacation?
Very talented and detailed.Thankyou

Feels like I am really in the room! Fantastic!

I like that! I really, really like these!!! Love the warped effect while not being too distorted so that it is hard to make out the image. Lovely artwork! I love this! :D Really good!

This reminds me of being at my Grandparents, snooping in all the nooks and cranny's. I can almost smell the fresh air, and the smell of a not very often used room!

Love the minimalist look. very inspiring.

This is a very uncomplicated picture, it's easy to see the meaning in it, but it is interesting and elegant in a way. It reminds me more of Henri Matisse's work, not so much the color but the simplicity of it.

Jody, I am an artist, my father went to Columbia Univ., he was fantastic before his time. I use to watch how he drew. He was great. I love and use oil, watercolors, pen and ink and won many awards. I just give my work to whom likes them and appreciates. You have color. I was told by Bob, let yourself go and paint from the heart. Thank you, Claire
