Even better on your wall...
Thank you for visiting my website. In a very real sense, art does not truly exist until someone besides the artist sees it. So I don't take your visit for granted, and I hope you enjoy the images I have posted here.
Artist Statement: I don’t know what exactly it is about abstract art that appeals to me so much. As an artist, I love that I am creating something ex nihilo—from nothing. I love the freedom, the pure discovery of combining shapes, movement, colors into something beautiful or intriguing that comes purely from my imagination. I am particularly drawn to the unique symmetry of the square format for my work. I also love vintage things (especially old cars, old phones and radios, and old cameras), so my photography tends to focus on things like that, though I also shoot macros and other types of photography.
Artist Bio: Jon Woodhams is an artist and photographer whose work has sold in New Zealand, Ireland, England, Germany, Canada, and across the United States. Jon grew up in a small central-Michigan town, in the shadow of the auto plants of Lansing and the cereal factories of Battle Creek. He studied the fine arts at a private Chicago-area college and lived in Colorado Springs and Brooklyn before coming to Memphis in 2012. He is a member of Artists’ Link and Bartlett Art Association. His work was featured in the Crosstown Arts exhibit Color Schemes: The Intensity of Color, and two of his photographs were purchased for inclusion in the permanent collection at Christian Brothers University’s Beverly and Sam Ross Gallery. When not creating art or shooting photos, he is a freelance book editor working with several publishing houses.
