“Adaptation,” an exhibit of paintings by Jonathan David Lange will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School from February 10 through April 10, 2012.
Lange describes his paintings as being concerned with multiple subjects with two primary themes. He says that the first theme has to do with ideas, before any word of description or physical action has been attached to the idea. The second theme has to do with memory, how we often unconsciously distort and fill in our personal history to bridge gaps and try to reconcile a peace or continuum within us. Lange places these themes in the contemporary context of our frenetically paced society — the age of the Internet.
Lange spent some time as a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2008) and holds a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Olivet University. He was chosen by Caelum Gallery in New York City in the fall of 2011 as one of 12 winners/exhibitors for the School's Out competition. Creating on his own, he also does commissioned work for private individuals and corporations. His work may be viewed at his website.
All are invited to a public reception hosted by the artist from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, on Friday, February 10. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 6:30 pm, weekdays. The exhibit is free to the public. For more information, contact Donya Allison (Fine Arts) at 314-993-4040, ext. 229 or email@example.com.
