JOHAN P. JONSSON (1966)
Johan Jonsson is autodidact. He uses sculptures, text and multimedia in his art.
“I saw Norman Mailer say about Hemingway that he, Hemingway, was a man of contradictions, of inner contradictions, and that people with inner contradictions often, just for that reason, turn to art. I don’t know, perhaps it is true for some artists. Perhaps I’m not so interested in Art, but rather incompatibilities, illogicalities, what doesn’t hang together…
To combine opposing parts, colors, shapes that don’t fit –this is basically what I do; I enjoy putting pieces together; the ugly, awkward, thing that don’t match.
