"It is possible to relentlessly pursue justice without falling into the temptation to pervert it into injustice.”
- Justin Holcomb
“The core of my thought process is dedicated to deconstruction, making mistakes, and finding truths in the abstract. I am deeply interested in the process of creating an aesthetic piece and how one gets there; understanding the reception of art, objects, and how extrinsic and intrinsic influences influence an individual’s reception to what they visually see. I am also interested in how creativity cultivates hope, revival, and the restoration of what was nothing into something beautiful.
This particular piece is called “Grace No. 1.” I constructed it with acrylic on top of a inkjet print.” -Jonni Cheatwood. Learn more about the artist here.
