Making references to Picasso, Delvaux and Magritte, Jonathan Gardner depicts women in a surreal manner.
Bizarre situations infused with elegance – Gardner’s oil paintings allow viewers to immerse inthe realism of his style. Raised in Lexington, the artist distorts faces and bodies that emerge in new contexts in line with contemporary facets of a human. Sense of solitude, the nude, self-identity – these themes seem to speak from Gardner’s neat graphics where no element is accidental and symbols lurk in every part of the canvas.
