Jon Love is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Lincoln, Nebraska. Although his mediums include video and web-based work, his most common area of practice utilizes hand drawn or painted images from pop-cultural and art history to be recontextualized towards the examination some aspect of contemporary culture. The works are often humorous and playful, but upon closer examination will reveal a part of the sadness of a world paradoxically both alienating and uber-connected. Most simply, Jon’s work examines the effects of what it means to live in the contemporary moment, when one is always both on- and offline simultaneously.
