Jonathan Prince opens his studio for virtual tour

The sculptor will share insights into his work and some highlights from his career

A virtual studio tour with American sculptor Jonathan Prince, who will give exclusive access to his impressive atelier in the Berkshires in rural Massachusetts, and share insights into his work as well as some highlights from his career, will take place on 21 May at 16:00 - 17:30 (Brussels) on Zoom.

 

“There’s this duality that I’m looking at, the duality of perfection versus chaos”, explains Jonathan Prince, who cites modernist sculptors such as Isamu Nogochi and Jean Arp among his influences. “As humans we strive for perfection, but in my work I like to show that the really beautiful portions of the sculptures are the breaks, the tears and the shatters. It’s a fantastic metaphor for life.”

The sculptor draws upon his extensive knowledge of nature, science, and the human body to create monumental and large scale works of art. His artistic practice is unique as he creates all of his work at his on-site fabrication facility using materials such as stainless steel, CorTen steel, aluminum, bronze, and granite. Jonathan is in control of the entire creative process which allows him to push the limits of world-class quality.

Jonathan has had numerous public art exhibitions throughout New York City, including: The 590 Madison Avenue Sculpture Garden, Christie’s Sculpture Garden, Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, and Hudson River Park at Pier 64.

The virtual visit in Prince’s studio will be hosted by Stephanie Manasseh, SM Art Advisory director. Stephanie is art advisor, curator, and Accessible Art Fair founder and her SM Art Advisory has been instrumental in promoting artists and cultivating unique environments and collections for clients around the world. Her Accessible Art Fair editions in Brussels are attracting every year thousands of art lovers from Belgium and abroad and are among the eagerly awaited cultural events in the Belgian capital.
