Jonathan Seliger is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY and Columbia County, NY. His objects are comprised of painted bronze and a variety of other metals, painted canvas constructions, works on paper and outdoor painted metal commissions; his sculptures range in scale from the hand-held, table-top, pedestal, wall and floor presentations, to the monumental.
Merging interests in the lineages of Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art and Trompe LâOeil, his subjects span iconic haute-couture shopping bags and ubiquitous, throwaway commercial packaging such as milk, juice and Chinese takeout containers, high and vernacular graphic design. He draws inspiration from ephemera, the signs and detritus of everyday contemporary living and seeks to find poetry in the desirable, the discardable and the familiar.
He has had over 30 solo shows around the world and has participated extensively in group exhibitions. His works are included in many prominent public and private collections, having exhibited his work domestically and internationally in commercial galleries, not-for-profits and museums for more than 25 years.
