By asking questions as a means of tending, Jones addresses social, political and economic issues through her work. Jones has worked with museums, galleries, and educational institutions as an artist, educator, and curator.

Statement:

Lisa Bachman Jones is a visual artist interested in how subjects, objects and activities interact within systems. She’s particularly attentive to the ones that are overlooked yet essential to the system in which they find themselves. Working across disciplines, Jones investigates the subtle movements of the solid and the fixed. She looks at how the permanence of things shifts over time when we are not paying attention, whether considering a vow, a slab of cement or a collective common sense. From a position of care, she sustains a suspicion of the settled and decided upon. By asking questions as a means of tending, Jones addresses the social, political and economic issues through her work.
