Jonathan Blackwell

My Paintings are primarily inanimate objects that are depicted in such a way to convey a particular thought or feeling. I use texture, space, color, composition, and other subtle techniques to influence the viewer to grasp the overall concept of the illustration. The goal of my work is to start a dialogue about issues that are relevant to me at the time that the painting was created. As time passes, it is my hope that viewers will see my work mature intellectually and aesthetically.
