PORTFOLIO – The Art of Jon Christopher

Featured

Jon, onehumanbeing“So, what do you do?”

“I’m an artist.”

“Really, what kind of art do you make? Do you paint?”

This is where I always pause, while my brain quickly runs through the mental catalog of the numerous art objects I’ve created over my lifetime, the wide variety…

“I do all kinds of stuff…” I usually end up replying.

If they look like they might want to hear more, I might say, “Mostly I make collages. Just about everything I do is based on collage – putting separate items together to create a new image, object, idea, sound-scape etc.”

Most people seem to go blank at this point. That’s when I throw in a new idea for them to consider, “Right now I’m focused on consciousness, and how to make art out of consciousness.”

I’m very proud of the brave people who want to find out more after that…

I’ve spent the last week (about 80 hours of computer time) adding work to the online retrospective show of my art since 1991. This is a major upgrade to a site I started work on in 2011 – if you visited it before you’ll find that the whole site has been extensively updated.

It’s been a very involved process, and just might be my favorite website I’ve ever built.

The PORTFOLIO is now open and ready for viewing! Continue reading

Today’s Image – September 29 through October 5, 2011

I’m into the third week of building a habit of posting a new image every day on the onehumanbeing facebook page.

I’m doing pretty good with the new habit – so far only one Today’s Image had to be posted a day late…

Here’s a gallery of the images from September 29th through October 5th:

 

During this time I’ve been busy preparing an upcoming project called Portfolio, which is a 20+ year retrospective of various art-objects I’ve created since Tania and I moved into our studio/apartment in Long Beach.

The collection in the Portfolio has over 200 images so far, and I still have quite a ways to go… I’ll post a message (of course) when it’s ready.

Until later, best of health.
