Jonathan Frey – Opening Reception
September 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Growing from research of the grid–a literal symbol of order, Jonathan Frey creates large- scale paintings and drawings that explore games, language, and the figure that consider various aspects of cultural and national identity. Frey’s work additionally explores definitions of American identity, focusing on the differences between the iconic representations of the United States and the lived experience. The work seeks to uncover myths, clichés, and stereotypes that have become accepted parts of American culture.
Jonathan Frey is Assistant Professor of Art and Art History at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA. Frey received a BFA in Visual Communication Design from the University of Dayton, Dayton, OH, an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Florida, Gainsville, FL, and a second MFA in Visual Communication Design from Pratt Institute, New York City, NY.
