Varnay Jones received an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest. She moved to the US in 1972 where she is based in San Francisco. Her early training in mathematics and geometry as well as a kinship with conceptual and minimalist art are evident in her works. Her quiet works echo the artist’s reverence for process and material while evoking an open-ended range of concepts from perception to relativity, transparency and time. Varnay Jones has had many solo exhibitions in the US, Europe and Japan. She has been honored with awards and grants from the Artists' Fellowship Inc. New York, California Art Council, the Art Matters Inc. New York, the Jerome Foundation Berkeley CA and the Barbara and Henry Miller Foundation MA. She has been finalist for SF Museum of Modern Art’s SECA Award and artist in residence at Lucid Art Foundation, Inverness, CA, Kyoto Seika University, Japan, Kala Art Institute, Berkeley, CA and ICA in San Jose, CA.
