With his Collaborator Rosa Gaia, Jeremiah founded Iris and Electra, a fine art company that works with interior designers to create cohesive art exhibitions in a variety of spaces.

As an artist Jeremiah Jones positions himself in various roles throughout the many worlds he has access to. Compelled by the conclusion that meaning, sincerity, and human connection will be the lasting hallmark of the art being made today, his work risks offending the people who would promise success in exchange for silence. His work is best known for telling stories in ways which complicate any easy read of the images he presents. Jeremiah's artistic practice incorporates various tactics and mediums, from documentary, sculpture, an engagement with painting surfaces, video, and multimedia installations. His work comes from the aesthetic lineage of Len Lye, Chris Marker, Alan Kaprow, and Ed Ruscha, continuously exploring what can be done with the materials, images, movements, and sounds of our evolving social landscape.
