Jim Houser Bio

About The Artist

Jim Houser was born in 1973 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the city where he currently resides. He is a self-taught artist and an honorary member of the Philly-based artist collective Space1026. Houser's installations create a mapping system, cataloguing his psychological states over the course of a particular period of time. His work explores the cadence of speech, science and science fiction, sickness and disease, plants and animals, time travel, ghosts, the art of children, secrets, radio, codes and code breaking, words that sound beautiful and mean something terrible, and words that sound horrible but mean something wonderful. Houser's collages, paintings, and installations have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, and Brazil. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Recently, Houser released a vinyl record of instrumental music composed to accompany his installations, and the songs are currently available on iTunes.
