About Jonathan

I’ve been sculpting over 25 years. Working mostly in bronze, my unique figurative sculptures relate to the structures and processes of life. The sculptures start with a DNA-like design, from which shapes grow suggesting both human and animal forms as well as the patterns and elements of nature. The sculptures are often compared to classic elements of earth, air, water and fire. Philadelphia Inquirer Art Critic, Victoria Donohoe describes them this way:

“Each has something like a physique, a physical tone, by which we can remember it. Their fluid movements make them seem like expressions of the human figure rather than mere objects. The viewer is drawn into their movement and energy, relating to the force of ongoing creation and change.”
