Jonathan Santoro

Working in sculpture and installation, Jonathan Santoro utilizes fractured narratives borrowed from mass culture, existential theater, and pop psychology to create paradoxical images where nothing is what it initially appears to be. He uses the slippages between form and language to explore alienation, societal fractures, and the human condition within contemporary American life. Creating visual misnomers that literalize figures of speech in concretized form, Santoro’s work employs pop cultural references, humor, and cartoonish intervention to undercut tragedy.
