Opening this week at PRISM Gallery in Los Angeles, Over Time is the first solo exhibition from Australian artist Jonathan Zawada. Part artist, part social anthropologist, part game-geek, Zawada explores contemporary social phenomena using a graphic, high-tech, neon visual language.
Posing questions like: Is there a correlation between the amount of pot high school seniors smoke and the amount of music they buy? Or: Why do people who Google “money” seem less likely to Google “problems”? Zawada records and graphs this information and then uses landscape-generating software to create images from the data. The result is a series of paintings that demonstrates Zawada’s technical skill, keen eye, and sharp wit.
