Jonathan Lyndon Chase
September 05 — September 26
JONATHAN LYNDON CHASE (b. 1989 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Lives and works in Philadelphia, PA) is an interdisciplinary artist who works in painting, video, sound, and sculpture to depict queer black love and community amidst the backdrop of urban and domestic spaces. Chase’s figures hang in various forms of articulation intertwined with domestic markers of a kitchen or a bedroom, they are then tethered by pop and street signage to blend emotional and physical, internal and external states of being. Rendered through layers of bright, visceral paint, make-up, foam and glitter these compositions challenge and subvert canonical misrepresentation and exclusion of the black body.
