A collection of influential books gifted from the personal libraries of revered arts and cultural figures.
Jon Kuzmich is an artist, creating labor and process-intensive visual systems that involve the conceptually driven organization of small, synthetic units into large and complex patterns.
Kuzmich’s work is often inspired by the fact that our perception as human beings is altered and distorted by our belief in systems that we create (religious, economic, scientific, etc.). By virtue of this distortion, systems change our relationship to the world, manipulate our understanding of reality and influence our relationship to the cosmos. In essence, our belief systems keep us confined within a synthetic, human-created world.
Utilizing Op-art, abstraction and conceptual art, Kuzmich considers his work to be representational due to the visual systems and the altered perception of the viewer that illustrates what we see and what we know are questionable.
