Genre: Visual Artist
Originally from Texas pausing briefly on the Ozark Plateau and along the Puget Sound John Humphries feels the Miami Valley is a location for locking in roots. Having completed degrees in Architecture, and Design with a brief foray as a saucier and metalsmith, John Humphries is a visual artist, gardener, and designer focusing on translating one media form to another. As an adopted child of first generation immigrants, the designer strives to generate and construct a conceptual and reflective narrative which expresses the alienness and thrill of discovering a new place and the difficulties of communicating the perception of new things to others. The visual syntax of architecture and design representation are used to generate drawings which probe the perception of new spaces and align one cognitive map [the canvas] with another [the viewer].
