All Eyes on Artist Jonathan Eric Gann

by Accidental Bear

At first glance of artist Jonathan Eric Gann from  Birmingham, Alabama, you can tell that there is depth behind those eyes, substance. Being the beard freak that I am, for a moment,  I got lost in his delicious beard then brought back to to life by his poignant conversation and the description of his art work. Jonathan’s work has a complexity to it and each piece can be read like story. I respect the fact that the story is not always obvious. It makes me come back for look after look. Mr. Gann’s art work is worth a million double-takes (that’s a lot). Mike Enders

About:

The mind is a tricky landscape. It is pregnant with crags and fissures that make the full understanding and acceptance of one’s personal identity, observed through a social lens, more of a problematic courtship and less a healthy exercise in self discovery. Pouring ideas into a creative format is a way to deal specifically with issues of identity, sexuality, stereotypes, and the darker concerns of a mind constantly in motion. Floating between a two-dimensional and three-dimensional platform, and across a myriad of mediums, themes of communalism and isolation, solipsism and escapism, and the  questioning of religious motivations remain prevalent and repeat through an ever expanding personal lexicon of imagery and ideals

Art is a catharsis, a means to deal with and let go of daily preoccupations of self-doubt and identity.
