Jonathan Fisher earned his BA from The University of North Carolina at Asheville and his MFA from Ohio State University. He is currently an instructor at The Art Institute of Atlanta. Jonathan's art begins as photographs. From there he manipulates the photograph, strips the original context and content and the piece becomes an experience less objective and a narrative that is more elusive- a dreamscape. He uses digital processes, transfers, screen-printing techniques, and acrylic paint to complete the work.
He says of his work "I often embellish the contrast of the photographic elements and use colors that are unnatural to the original. Some of my pieces have clearer narratives than others. Dreams are very similar. Some of my dreams have linear plot lines or reveal clear parallels to my day-to-day life. Other dreams are collages of vague familiarities that come crashing together with no real logical reason or purpose- images act as disparate symbols to be deciphered".
