Art Opening with live performance painting by JONNMARC
Location: Central Properties, 1353 V Street NW, Washington DC
Date: March 24th, 6-9pm
Central Properties real estate brokerage in DC’s 14th Street NW Corridor, is pleased to present an evening of art and performance featuring the avant-garde stylings of artist JONNMARC on Thursday, March 24th from 6-9pm. The title of the exhibition, ‘6 Hats,’ references the axiom that we wear many hats, or take on many different roles, in our daily lives. Through a collection of intimate portraits, JONNMARC aims to get a glimpse behind the mask of his subject muses, to gain a greater understanding of the individual and to peek at their true selves.
“We scatter and move and lose different people form our lives while we are too busy playing all these roles, yet somehow we manage to keep life moving forward without the wheels falling off,” JONNMARC says. The artist had wide-ranging conversations with each portrait subject in order to learn more about them. He explained, “It was so I could take them in and give them the opportunity to become vulnerable together. From that conversation would emerge a thesis for each muse, which led to a greater understanding of the individual and served as a grounding for the portraits.”
“As a company that values independence and expression, we are happy to partner with JONNMARC to celebrate his achievement in experimental art,” said Central Properties president, Paul Sliwka. “Central Properties has been enriched by giving back to the community over our first 5 years, and we’re proud to offer our space as a gallery for local artists. This exhibition by JONNMARC will be a bold and engaging experience for all in attendance,” concluded Sliwka.
JONNMARC works across all media, but primarily uses painting, sculpture, installation, and performance; often combining ideas from various fields. He looks for the bigger picture, and the in-depth connections. The primary idea in his work is the human condition defined through experience and shared through language. Communication, symbols, and human anatomy informed by an interest neurobiology and culture are some of the other complex themes he places in his work. These themes are often hidden beneath bright color and a positive mood, depicting how many of us live our lives. The integration and exploration of his ideas, and cryptic presentation is often important to him.
Connecting with the community and reaching out to collaborate with other organizations is vital to his creative process, and he is a strong believer in art having initiative and making change. His recent collaborative work is with the dancers of the Washington Ballet, SMYAL, Washington D.C. Capital Pride, Green DMV, the DC Collaborative, The Embassy Row Hotel, The Capital Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness, and DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities: Art All Night. He is constantly looking for new ways to make his work connect with others. To see more art work and keep up with his current pieces visit: www.JONNMARC.com.
