Inside the Studio with Summer 2023 Resident, Jean Shon, at the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho on July 8, 2023.

Inside the Studio provided an opportunity to see Shon's creative practice, the work she created while on-site, and to learn more about her experience at the James Castle House.

Jean Shon (she/her) is an artist working with installation, photography, and text. Originally from La Marque, Texas, Shon frequently explores notions of hometown, memory, identity, il/legibility, and loss through family history and archives. She focuses on connecting fragmented pasts to the present in order to construct non-linear, complexly layered narratives. Frequently employing family archival material for the basis of her work, she raises questions about the things we inherit: physical, mental, and emotional, and re-presents these remnants of the past to both reveal and reimagine the history they hold.
