  • Urbanism: Mixed Media Paintings by Jonathan Carter

    • 28 January 2023
    • Posted By Ellen Muse-Lindeman

    Through a series of mixed media paintings, Cincinnati artist Jonathan Carter creates new organisms formed of architectural elements that express a living place filled with both sublime beauty and mysterious, anonymous
    danger at every turn.

    “While living in the West End community of Cincinnati many years ago I experienced the urban environment at different times of the year, in all kinds of weather, and by both day and night. In time my memories formed a
    kind of gestalt organism, or urbanism, living vividly in my mind across many points of space and time. In seeking to portray this urbanism as a thriving creature, I do so not only to point out the need of many things, but to also show the dangers of creating too polished an environment and cleaning out the character of these city spaces, as is the case with gentrification. While also pointing out environmental injustice and seeking solutions to these problems, I wish to revel in the aged character and ability of these spaces to act as leveling grounds for people of all socioeconomic strata to find ways to interact.”

    Opening Reception: Saturday, August 5 from 6-8pm. Free, open to the public, light refreshments served.
