Fred’s Bio: Frederick Wright Jones’s sculptural works reside at the crossroads of identity and violence. Born in Kimberton, Pennsylvania, USA, he has spent much of his adult life traveling between the Philadelphia area and Hamburg, Germany. Pushed by a responsibility to critically analyze history, national myth, and culture, he builds tools, toys and totems fusing social responsibility with post-punk cynicism. His hybrid practice is body based: figurative and performative. Frederick Wright Jones received his MFA from SUNY Buffalo. He is currently an assistant professor of sculpture at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA.  Click here to learn more about Fred and his work.
