This is Not Art


Jonny Niesche

Critical Animals

Jonny Niesche is interested in teasing and stretching the spatial limitations of traditional painting, speculating upon various ways in which painting might transcend and articulate space. His practice is concerned with the cultivation and manipulation of aesthetic ‘experiences’, bisecting the relationships between object and illusion, reduction and excess, the digital and the handmade. He depends on an aesthetic vocabulary that perverts the lineage of art history combining a classical modernist language with the noise and viscera of consumer culture.
