Jeffrey Cortland Jones, a painter based in Cincinnati, Ohio and a native of East Tennessee, is a Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Dayton. He received his MFA in painting from the University of Cincinnati in 2000 and a BFA in painting from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1998. He sees painting as a physical activity and a material process rather than as a language that conveys narrative meaning. He is interested in how chance happenings and the union of formal opposites such as geometric versus organic and controlled versus spontaneous, challenge and instruct the work. Jeffrey is represented by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, New York.
