- About -

BIO Jeffrey Cobbold is a multimedia artist from Piscataway, New Jersey. His interdisciplinary work in contemporary art demonstrates various modes of experimentation and conceptualization regarding the deconstruction of his personal identity and Christian faith. His work has been exhibited in divergent arts & humanities contexts within the United States, Spain and the United Kingdom. ARTIST STATEMENT I am a multimedia artist who creates multimedia installations, experimental soundscapes, video, texts and posters. I make what I make due to personal loss—in a single month I lost a career, my parents divorced, and a trusted pastor and symbol of security abruptly retired. This series of changes left me disillusioned and reflecting deeply on my identity. I turned towards contemporary art as a way to understand the space between who I am and who I imagine myself to be. I’m always interpreting loss and critiquing the security that tradition seeks to provide us in life. I strive to inspire myself and others to move creatively through these elements and experiment with modes of personal reflection leading toward self-actualization. Daily I engage in theological reflection through journaling & music listening (particularly to song lyrics) to gather insight on my interpersonal relationships and feelings. This inspires me to search for sounds, texts or images from my life that can be digitally processed and re-contextualized into a multimedia installation, experimental soundscape, video, text or poster. Each one of my multimedia projects has a pathway back to the personal or private within my life.
