Flamboyant Movements, 2017
Acrylics and Posca on Cotton canvas
Original Painting, 46 x 55 x 2 cm
Late night acrylic cities on canvas, energetic patterns pulsing in endless spiraling movement towards God or Chaos, vibrant shapes mechanically trembling against the wind and geometric variations are continuously multiplied like there is no beginning or an end to anything, leaving the soul amidst all the odds searching for answers.
The contemporary art of Jonathan Pradillon is an endless chase for life, his abstract compositions convey in most cases philosophical messages about the wonders of this world and beyond. His paintings are usually created by using acrylics, brushes and knives, but when sculpting he prefers contrasting elements, such wood and metal to accentuate the apposite dynamics of nature.This artist is an exceptional fractal image maker, his ongoing feedback loop of repeating patterns symbolises the complexity of life. However at the same time, it mirrors the soil erosion of mother earth itself, the deterioration and rebirth of our universe. And perhaps it stands as a mere promise that even when we go, we can still manage to go on forever...
