Downs is a multimedia artist whose practice occupies a broad spectrum—from sculpture, to video, to performance. Often time based, and marked by his physical occupation of a space, Downs’s work is typically a reaction to his surroundings. Previous projects have explored disassemblage and the resurgence of nature in ecosystems impacted by mining.
Downs was born in New Brunswick, ME, and received his BFA at Maine College of Art in Portland, ME. He has an MFA from The Ohio State University (OH) where he currently works and teaches.
