Jonathan Whitter

Note 01

(The Dancehouse 2018)


Jonathan Whitter's work  is concerned with our perceived understanding of reality, the reductive nature of this understanding and the structures that are formed on the basis of this construct. It explores and expresses underlying themes and concepts related to internal and external religious spaces, illusion, the role of technology and the sublime; providing a meditative space for the viewer to contemplate the ideas within the work.

Our reality is unfolded to us but it's not an actuality, only a perceived reality as related to the individual. This subjective reality forms us within the context of a socio-cultural system. It's this relationship and the nature of understanding that I express within my work.
