Gallery Series: Opening Reception of Jonathan Zwi
February 12, 2020 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Jonathan Zwi is a visual artist and musician of Brazilian heritage whose primary interest lies in exploring the dynamics of aesthetic experience and the perceptual mechanisms through which we construct concepts of meaning and beauty in art.
The current exhibition comprises a selection of paintings created during his residency in the village of Tatuamunha, Brazil in August of 2017. These paintings seek to evoke some of the natural and social experiences of daily life in this rural part of the country—experiences that are uniquely personal, but which embody pervasive cultural realities that pertain to the country as a whole.
Moreover, these works stand as a poetic reference to the individuals who
—with hope and humility—continue to find beauty and dignity in the simplicity of their lives.
