Jeff Gibbons is an artist living and working in Arlington, Texas. Gibbons is currently enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at The University of Texas Arlington, Arlington, Texas. He has recently participated in a number of group exhibitions including "Art in the Metroplex" at TCU Gallery in Ft. Worth, Texas and "Wunderkammer" at Conduit Gallery in Dallas, Texas.

Humming Music and Grinding Teeth, Gibbons current exhibition, will consist of an installation in the New Works Space and a video to be screened in one of The MAC's theater spaces. The exhibition focuses on an individual's life long search for identity. Gibbons is interested in the many layers of self-identity, how it is formed and how it is, or is not, understood by the individual. Gibbons states, "This search for identity, along with our wanted understanding of truth, puts us into a constantly changing mental transience where we chase ourselves into death, never turning to shake our own hand and say, "Nice to meet you." It is in this way that we are alone, even to ourselves."
