THE 8TH FOLD. 2015
The 8th fold is a showcase of four emerging artists working and living in South Australia,(Nicholas Hanisch, Alison Thomas, Jonathan George, Pedro Shi). The themes of each artist are varied yet complementary, exploring worlds of beautiful decay through prisms of politics, nature, neurology and the realms of a dystopian universe
Jonathan George is an emerging South Australian Artist. His practice is informed by our relationships and interactions with the built environment, This body of work employs paper folding for its immediacy to describe and manipulate space. By interrupting symmetrical forms with irregular forms allows the possibility to explore a disruption between order and chaos. The work borrows from from a language found in architectural models to discover alternate spatial possibilities.
