Jacob Meders is a member of the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria, California. He presently lives in Phoenix, Arizona. He graduated in 2007 with his BFA in painting and a minor in printmaking at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia and in 2011 received his MFA in printmaking at Arizona State University.
Jacobâ€™s work focuses on altered perceptions of place, culture, and identity built on the assimilation and homogenization of indigenous peoples. His work reexamines varied documentation of Native Americans through printing processes that hold on to stereotypical ideas and how they have affected the culture of the native people. Using book forms and prints as a symbol of western knowledge and the linear mind, Jacob deploys them as a vehicle to challenge new perceptions of Native Americans.
