In “Heavy Levity,” the most recent exhibition by California based artist Jonny Alexander, the line between what may appear to be opposing forces in our world becomes blurred. Landscapes juxtaposed with domestic scenes set the stage for an array of human-made objects. Seemingly mundane, these objects act as a cast of characters playing out the complex narratives in each painting. In “Heavy Levity,” the domestic merges with the natural and the line between the two opposing forces begins to dissipate. Social critiques exist within ethereal scenes and moments of banality live in tandem with the surreal, much the way life happens around us. Jonny says “The Convergence of these facets of life present us with a more well-rounded, compassionate and abundant understanding of each other and our existence”.
