Jonathan Crowther

BIO

Jonathan Crowther’s latest work examines the relationship between time and place, and the way these relationships are subverted through the internet. Art history , and the works that define it, are available at a touch of a button, uprooting them from any specific time and place, consumable by anyone with a computer.

Using artworks from the Dutch Golden Age as a starting point, Crowther relishes in his own fascination with realism, dislocating and relocating parts of paintings from this period, and others, to assemble a new image. These artworks, of parts floating in an ambiguous void, question ideas of originality, individualism, and the relevance of time and place in today’s digital world.
