About the event
Jon allows his artwork to be a form of communication and to share a window into his creative, sometimes mischievous, often playful mind.
Jon’s paintings embrace imagination, process and chance. Using highly watered paints, he lets the paint flow as colors swirl and seep into one another. He often uses black, hinting at mystery and intrigue. He loves to “get messy” in art, coating his hands in paint to feel the experience of expression. But “messy” his paintings are not as they exude elegance and the calm of a traveling drop of rain on a windowpane. Jon also uses the medium of sculpture to express playfulness and a curious dichotomy between minimalism and obsession. His sculptural work bundles beads, wire, and other found objects to create a counterpoint to his paintings that embrace color and whimsy. Altogether, Jon’s work is a contemplation of both the natural and the supernatural, taking us to a realm beyond this one.
