Visually Explosive: Art by Jon Duci
Jon Duci is our featured artist for today! Jon’s artwork is a visually explosive combination of dynamic lines, pop-culture references, and the artist’s own signature sense of humour about his works. Using painting, collage, and mixed media, Jon’s style is distinct in each different medium.
Jon’s paintings overflow with contorted faces in nightmarish neon colours, divided by lines reminiscent of cartoon lightning. In his drawings, he manages to keep the same level of intensity even without the use of colour, creating expansive spaces of dense pattern that are at once overwhelming, and hard to look away from.
I really enjoy Jon’s collage work, where he creates images that are somewhat reminiscent of old-fashioned advertising, using out-of-context signs and figures to convey a message that is just out of the viewer’s reach.
