The paintings and sculptures of Jonathan Shimony investigate a world filled with violence and destruction. The mad quest for power and money has increasingly led to a vision of humans as little different from commodities bought and sold on the market. There is no apparent limit to the number of human lives willingly sacrificed without regret to advance the power and wealth of those already holding the most important reins of society.
This work was featured in Future Perfect on view at BronxArtSpace January - February 2018.
