Jonathan Monaghan is an American contemporary artist who works across a range of media, including prints, sculpture, and video, to create what he calls a “new mythology” for contemporary society. Carrying on the tradition of Pop Art, Monaghan looks at our current blind consumer culture obsessed with technology and consumer goods with a critical eye.
DetailsDescription: Monaghan invites us into a candy-colored, yet unsettling world uncovering fears and anxieties about an increasingly technological future. Drawing on a range of imagery, from baroque architecture to consumer electronics, Monaghan’s cryptic works draw attention to the ever blurring lines between the natural and artificial. Moreover, the artist levels criticism at capitalism, wide distribution of surveillance systems, and the large brand culture.
