Artist Statement and Biography:
Jon Jaylo’s artworks play around a parallel dream world in where everything is floating surreal and dancing in a contained universe inspired by poetry. His technical depictions are often varying in display and style, as if he himself is never contented with the present stature of his works. They are constantly evolving in both idea and form, gradually maturing together with the artist himself.Scaling this balance, narrating a massively deep philosophy of thought through a theatrical rendition of intensely brilliant colors that seem to amuse its audience and present a status of intellectual complacency. Like dreams that reflect a reversed mirror of man’s desires, fantasies,his works are merely manifestations of knowledge, the metaphysics of his own philosophy and the resolving of experiences behind and even far beyond it.
On the full picture of it, the artist’s works are masked and laced with a dream-like feel, very inviting, yet when you go inside, there’s always a puzzle to be solved. Because his works are not just depictions of visual aesthetics. His works are a research on life itself, and the enigma of thought beneath it.
