About the Author

John Melvin
johnkmelvin San Francisco, CA USA

John K. Melvin is a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily with environmental installations. Melvin’s work is committed to an investigation of material guided by conceptual practice. In the process of this investigation, connections are made between themes of absence and presence -- and material movements through time, place, identity, order, and change. At the center of this investigation is to distill a meaning of ecology that is relevant to cultural identity. Exhibitions of his work have been in San Francisco, Portland, Santa Fe, Sarasota, and Boston nationally, as well as internationally in Scotland and France. Public art is a critical component of Melvin’s practice; one such project in collaboration with the San Francisco Arts Commission is slated for 2010. Melvin earned his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston,a Post-Baccalaureate from the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art in France, and received his MFA in 2009 from the San Francisco Art Institute.
