Josh Bonnett: 1708 Gallery Graduate Artist Forum Nominee
"In today’s technological and media saturated world images and information are mediated through multiple filters and are eventually presented as some kind of truth or fact of reality. This idea of mediation and the process of abstraction, both in terms of what the mediated image is and what abstraction in art can, or historically functions as are the major investigations of my work. "
Josh Bonnett is an MFA candidate in painting at Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts. He was nominated by his department to be a part of the fourth annual 1708 Gallery Graduate Artist Forum.
