FRESH FACES IN ART: ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW

EMERGENT PRESENCE BY ARTRA CURATORIAL | ARTRA Curatorial is comprised of Max Presneill (MP), Kio Griffith (KG) & Colton Stenke (CS)

JONNI CHEATWOOD Playing a strategic game upon the surface of his often raw, large-scale, stitched together canvases, Cheatwood plays a set of related decisions in a step-by-step rejoinder to each possible move. The working process plays out on the studio floor, as the artist simultaneously moves from canvas to canvas, leaving behind the detritus of his own accidental marks, shoe prints, dropped and spilled materials, etc. so the work tracks its own history, the reality of the studio environment, the physicality of making paintings. With bold colors, occasional text and raw power that all merge into a rough and ready approach, that somehow remains elegant and visually seductive, these paintings point to a positive future for the young artist.
