Jon teaches printmaking and foundations at the University of Georgia, and he serves as the board president at Athens Institute for Contemporary Art, aka ATHICA. Jon received an MFA from the University of North Texas in 2015 in Denton, Texas, and earned a Professional Printer Certificate from the Tamarind Institute for Lithography in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2010. Jon’s interest in printmaking began at Iowa State University in Ames, IA, where he received his BFA in 2008. Jon has played percussion since the 6th grade.


My interest in printmaking as a binary art form coincides with my understanding of drumming and sound– positive/negative, hit/rest, trough/crest, something is either there or it’s not. Space is the place. 1’s and 0’s. Seriousness in play is important. Pattern, repetition, rhythm, noise, and interference are qualities that I apply and seek out in both my image and sound making. My goal is to achieve complexity through simple means and limitations.

_Haploid (sound) was created by performing variations on a single pattern programmed with a PO-32 drum machine. The resulting sound was digitally recorded, edited, and mastered in Reaper.

_Haploid (image) was created by hand printing an arranged set of modular relief blocks onto Thai Kozo paper. The resulting print was put through a Marvy Uchida crimper.
