Jonathan Casella Biography

Born and raised in Houston (Texas), Jonathan Casella travelled around the United States over the past few years, with stops in San Francisco, New York, Portland, Oregon and Los Angeles. His works deal ​with perception and the relationship/commonality we share with form and patterns, the influence colour has on us, and the reality we perceive. Likewise, it explores painting as a means of language to express the inherent and unknown, and finding a universality through the re-articulation and synthesis of traditional gesture through colour, shape, and pattern.

From 2015—2017 he directed Open Gallery and then Caravan Contemporary. ​While displaying his work at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, he also exhibited in San Francisco at the Luggage Store, and New Langton Arts, as well as in New York, at the Scott Charmin Gallery, the Nationale and Open Galleries, and Galerie COA, in Montréal. We could say that Jonathan Casella plays with some aesthetic of punk or pathos. While Jonathan Casella paints about painting we can obviously notice inspirations such as Pop art masters (Warhol, Lichtenstein, Hockney) but we could say in a ​camp ​way (such as Susan Sontag describes it in her seminal 'Notes on Camp') and also in a geometrical fashion. From an aesthetic point of view, Jonathan Casella enumerates influences such as Imi Knobel, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol Lewitt, and Jean Dubuffet, as well as George Condo, Mary Heilmann, Rob Pruitt, and Luc Tuymans.
