BIOGRAPHY:

 

Jonathan is a sculptor based in Spicewood, TX.  Although his work is varied in both subject matter and medium, he has a tendency to construct large abstract pieces combining various metal, wood, concrete and found objects.  The sculptures Jonathan creates reflect a marriage of his emotions and experiences, through process and materials.  The convergence of physical and mental adventure, intuitive discovery, and continual experimentation are the necessary infrastructures that enable his unique art to be realized.  Intrigued by nature and man's incessant imprint on the environment, sculpture allows him to bridge the gap between the two by integrating found objects with rudimentary building materials.  With a long background in various construction, fabrication and welding processes, Jonathan most credits his many years volunteer instructing at SDSU’s Sculpture Department and maintaining the discipline to complete 3 extra courses of Advanced Sculpture, as his life’s most pivotal learning experience.  Jonathan’s meticulous dedication to detail and craftsmanship, his knowledge and experience with multi mediums and his unique skillset to problem solve, drives his creativity and passion for the arts.  He is able to take on the design and sculpting of private commissions, as well as public art.  Jonathan is a member of The International Sculpture Center, Texas Sculpture Group, Texas Society of Sculptors and a member of the Bee Caves Arts Commission.  Please phone or email to discuss his work or for more information about sculpting commissions.  Prices are generally based on the medium of the work, length of the project, and size.  He will gladly give you an estimate once you have sat down and discussed the work.  Please phone or email to discuss his work or for more information about sculpting commissions.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT:

 

Space can be considered as "necessity for sculpture,” it is where we create and bridge both objects and emotions ...a setting to echo the experiences and ever-changing relationships that transpire between process and materials.  Jonathan's artworks are an introspective collaboration between the two.  Often his sculptures converge his proclivity for intuitive discovery with the very objects or materials that he finds at random and repurposes; merely extending and altering their initial discovered state to that of another, usually with an infrastructure stemming from his fascination with ferrous metals.  He also appreciates the freedoms his building processes allow, that not only help strengthen the creative harmonies in his work, but gives him opportunities to resolve more challenging situations through what he regards as 'mental sketching.’  Through Jonathan's disciplined artistic direction towards impulse, spontaneity, and a profound hunger for explorative challenge, sculpture is his release in three dimension.
