STEREO BALANCED: Closing Reception

EXHIBITION BOOK

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE > February 18, 2012

TODD JONES | Stereo Balance(d)

PROVIDENCE, RI – Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to host STEREO BALANCED, a closing reception for Todd Jones’ visual and aural art concept ‘STEREO BALANCE’, on Saturday, 3 March 2012 from 5PM to 9PM. Jones will also premiere a new music video to conclude the exhibit.

Set to music from the show’s title track, Jones notes that the video “incorporates images from scared and cultural roots, reinterpreted in a modern light.”

STEREO BALANCE invites viewers to experience a self-contained world, populated with symbols and images – and activated through sound. The exhibit includes individual pieces linked to original music that can be heard from a media hub fabricated by Jones out of organic and digital materials to enhance the experience.

“The process was a natural progression from this pairing of sight and sound to the incarnation of video,” Jones explains.

STEREO BALANCE/D is sponsored by COLLECT ART, an Emerging Artists Series launched by Yellow Peril Gallery in 2012 to feature solo exhibitions from fresh new talent in all mediums who have never had a one-person show. Jones is the first artist to be selected for the ongoing series.


About Todd Jones
TODD JONES is a self-described “Living Creator.” Electronic music, of varying genres, operates as both his fundamental and quintessential medium. Alternative and supporting media include digital and visual art, video and animation, poetry and fiction. A Vassar College graduate with a concentration in Religion and Music, Jones’ work is strongly experimental, often using deliberately limited techniques to catalyze the integration of radical concepts throughout the sub-and-superstructure of his work. Recent exhibitions: Tiger Boxing (Gleason’s Boxing Gym, Dumbo Arts Festival 2011); The Song of Metacom (Perry Clan Reservation 2009); Strange Flora ‘Technical Drawings’ (The Ruined Map Gagarin Records Germany 2010); An Opening Door, (African American Identity Exhibit, URI, Providence, RI Gallery for Heritage and Culture 2012); Symphony for My Grandfather: First Movement (DDFS Fashion Show Amsterdam-Scotland 2010).
