Biography

John Early is an interdisciplinary artist who works in installation and other site-based forms. Using a visual language of marks and traces, his drawings, sculptures, and spatial interventions elevate the overlooked and reframe our relationship with things familiar, forgotten, or cast aside. As the father of three young sons, much of his work over the past seven years has been prompted by domestic life, while more recently, his work has taken the form of quasi-archeological explorations of the physical fabric and material landscape of St. Louis. John received an MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis in 2010, an MA from Covenant Theological Seminary in 2007, and a BA from the University of Virginia in 2000. He is currently a Lecturer in the College of Art at Washington University in St. Louis.
