Jon Verney is a visual artist whose practice interweaves the materiality of photography and painting to explore themes of dissolution and transformation. Found imagery, natural phenomena, and chance inform his work with photography’s physical, fluid qualities. Verney received his MFA from Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan in 2016 and a BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2010. He exhibits his work nationally and internationally and has been an artist resident at the Vermont Studio Center, the Studios at MASS MoCA, Penland School of Craft, the SIM Residency in Reykjavik, and spent two years in Florence, Italy working at Studio Art College International. His studio practice is currently based in Brooklyn, New York, and North Adams, Massachusetts.
