Ready to Hang

As I travel from place to place I must paint within the moment of each environment. These different situations, sounds, lights, people and cultures are a vital influence on my creation. For each experience the colors, textures, brushstrokes, and overall mood is articulated through my self-conscience and vibes of each location. The title for each piece is based on the experiences within each piece generating a metaphor of meaning. I paint the hidden geometrical shapes created by the light and shadow in organic forms and enhance the geometric edifices through gestural painting. The concept is reverse reality or the opposite of form, the alteration of organic (trees, people) to geometric and geometric (buildings, cars) to organic. My paint is applied directly to the surface and mixed through the painting process, keeping it active and fluid. Having worked in a variety of rural and urban settings such as France, Hong Kong and throughout the U.S. has brought diversity to my subjects.

My name is Jonathon Lee Shannon. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. In my life I feel a deep and indescribable bond with the natural world that grows around me. As I travel from place to place I must paint within the environments. These different environments, sounds, lights, people and cultures are a vital influence on my painting. For each experience the colors, textures, brushstrokes, and overall mood is articulated through my self-conscience and inner emotions. I look for the hidden geometrical structures in natural forms and enhance that structure through gestural painting. Paint is applied directly to the surface and mixed through the painting process, keeping it active and vital. Having worked in a variety of rural and urban settings such as Lacoste, France, Hong Kong and all over the U.S. has brought diversity to my subjects. The merging of natural and man made geometry with fluid, organic paint is at the core of these works. The title for each piece is based on the experiences within each painting.
