Circus Lemonade One

Jonathan Fields

Opening Reception: March 23rd, 6-10PM

March 23rd - April 20th

It would like to develop a language of sculptural form in which time and motion can enter the life of the piece with the same ease and authority as do the cultural references of the image, and physicality of object. Combining the sculptural and the theatrical, the photographic and the performative and the personal with the public to create work that infuses the present with the material accumulations of the past. The everyday has become the continues challenge for the individual, who sees him/herself being unceasingly forced to re-signify and re-organize the most ordinary and common relations he/she has with the real world and, at the same time, with his/her notion of the self. There has been a fascination with the way architectural structures embrace, contain, shelter, frame, and even control the individuals who inhabit them. The world of art has naturally manifested itself into more than aesthetics and is no longer all about what the viewer sees, but rather what the viewer feels and takes away from the work.

This is exhibition is a part of the ACRE residency program.

Jonathan Fields was born in Charleston West Virginia, and live and work in work in Los Angeles. He received his BFA from Art Center College of Design and has recently been accepted to the MFA (new genres) program at UCLA with expected graduation in 2015.

ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibition) was founded in 2010 with the ambition to provide the arts community with an affordable, cooperative, and dialogue-oriented residency program. The residency itself takes place each summer in rural southwest Wisconsin and brings together artists from across disciplines and levels of experience to create a regenerative community of cultural producers. Over the course of the following year ACRE endeavors to further support its residents by providing venues for exhibitions, idea exchange, interdisciplinary collaboration, and experimental projects.
