Jonfan and Dimey

No Longer Available




22” x 30”


Jonathan Adams (b. 1991, Bristol, VA) drawings display an otherworldly confluence of mythical and historical narratives as they relate to personal and collective histories. Adams’ excavates psychological, symbolic, and social ghosts of growing up in the culturally complex Appalachian region of the American South - notably early experiences in the church (Beasts and mythology of scripture), family drug abuse, systemic class racism and southern mysticism inform the sensational imagery present in the work — The narratives represent the turbulence, the mud and fog, the twists and turns, of contemporary black life after death. Jonfan & Dimey are portraits of him and his brother camouflaging as denizens of Appalachia with interjections of black culture.
