Jeff Prokash embraces the freedom of reinterpretation to suggest new relationships between the subject and the staging of the built environment.  Objects are positioned to present intrinsic systems of organization, interpolating unexpected associations through the production of subjective narratives. Prokash produces a reconsidered relationship with the material world and a reorientation of the value systems that are implicated in the construction and reconstruction of the built environment.

Jeff Prokash is an interdisciplinary artist, researcher, and educator in Chicago, IL. He received his MFA in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his BFA from University of Wisconsin Madison.
