(New York, NY) -- New Jersey multimedia artist Jon Koones will be displaying new and current works from his Love-Petra series at Spectrum New York Art Fair from October 3rd through October 6th. Inspired by the entrance to the treasury monument in PETRA, Jordan, Koones will be showing two dimensional paintings and one 7' painted wood sculpture. The work features strong abstract female form using metallic irridescent and bright acrylic paint on canvas. The sculpture will consist of various layers of wood with painted finish. Using triangle form to spell the word LOVE, that is both ancient and contemporary in appearance, Koones uses acrylic and acrylic polymers to achieve three dimensional high lifts off the canvas.
started as an experimental piece of work that I have repeated over and
over in different forms and materials. Like the emotion of love it
continues to expand. Let it be seen in may places, in many forms." - Jon
