Biography:Jon Redmond is a Pennsylvania based artist whose work has ranged from landscape painting to tintype photography. Redmond?s subject matter are landscapes and buildings, interiors and exteriors, void of inhabitants and imbued with an eerie sense of impending drama. Under roiling clouds or down a narrow hallway, the viewer is subjected to the intensity of the mundane. Primarily a plein aire painter Redmond tends to work in sizes that are easily transported on bicycle. The modest sizes, many 10 inches by 10 inches imbue the work with an approachable, human quality. These are paintings that, at once, welcome a long, lingering gaze while conveying a palpable sense of the immediacy of the artist?s experience. They are clearly places captured as the artist encountered them but, when filtered through the artist?s eye and sensibility, become much more than mere representations of place. Streets, homes, the land, the places where children play and invent their own worlds, are the stuff from which Redmond constructs his own world of imagery. Redmond?s paintings appropriate and transform the everyday, capturing a sense of home in these structures and the fragility of the very notion of home. Jon Redmond graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1991, and was honored with many awards, including the Thomas Eakins Memorial Prize in 1988 and 1990, the Mary Butler Memorial Award, the Wallace Cadwalader Prize for Landscape and Portraiture, the Pew Charitable Trust Fellowship, and a full fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center in 1992 and 1993. Redmond's paintings are in many important collections including the Delaware Art Museum.
