Human Hoop

Jonah Ortiz's avatar Jonah Ortiz

Jonah Ortiz’s work is a complex blend of high and low-brow pop-media references, coupled with a subtext of analogies to personal stories. Grounded in concept and wild in form, his work plays on noise and color to create an aesthetic style which offends the senses and challenges the mind. Using familiar games and toys as rudimentary models, the artwork aims to bridge the gap between the creativity of childhood, and the reality of adulthood. The ironic message behind each piece is partially derived from personal experience, but the all-inclusive style of the work allows for a unique experience no matter what level of fluency one has in the art world.
