"This piece "Mental Manifest Destiny" is about my transition from my home in San Diego to my current residence in Detroit. I started it while at the beach with my girlfriend Bethany, a common occurrence before my move, so there is probably sand embedded in some of the gouache.  It was finished 2,300 miles away in brick walled loft in Detroit a few months later. The piece is a personal reflection on my transition between places, which I think a lot of people can relate to. Having feelings of carrying with you pieces of home while moving to a new place. The figure in the painting is stuck between two bodies of land.  Holding a boat in his hand wondering where it should sail next. Does it go east or west? Mental Manifest Destiny is a play on words about the western expansion of the United States and how in my transition I was internally facing west." - Jonny Alexander


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jonny Alexander comes to us with an introspective look at our natural planet. Hailing from California and spending his time exploring the state’s deserts, mountains and coastlines his art sheds light on the intricate patterns of the natural environment and the varying forms it takes.

“Drawing connections between the patterns I see in nature helps me to shape my understanding of reality and the world we live in,” Alexander says.

His paintings carry with them a backbone of narrative surrealism filtered through an upbringing in the surf and skate culture of Southern California giving it a vibrant and contemporary appearance.

You may find him at his desk painting small details, out painting a mural, in the printmaking studio or possibly even in the mountains somewhere crouched down looking very closely at a stick or some rocks.
