Searching for an Electric Peanut

5 July 2018 - 27 July 2018

An on-going series of work - Searching For An Electric Peanut - borrows its title from a term used by Philosopher Timothy Morton for describing the after-image which is imprinted onto the retina, the after-image phenomena, curiously, is also employed in Tibetan Buddhism for particular Image/vision based devotional practices. Throughout Jonathan’s career and work he has sought out themes which question and explore comparative religion and expressions of the numinous, by employing tools that aim to challenge perception and visual representation. Through the use of time-based and hand-made artwork, his practice attempts to create a space in which the physicality of painting is more strongly perceived by its juxtaposition with ephemeral and digital based imagery (McLuhan's distinction between “hot” and “cold” media).
