Jonny Niesche’s neon-hued chromatic fields and prismatic structures riff on mid-century minimalism with formal inventiveness. The artist employs voile, dye sublimation, mirrored frames, and digital color palettes (which he makes himself ) to generate what he calls “image-objects”—pieces that straddle the line between painting and sculpture. Inspired by Ziggy Stardust and other collectible items from David Bowie’s indelible glam rock era, Jonny Niesche’s paintings function something like a concept album caked with cultural samples. His paintings disinter pigments central to Bowie’s iconic glam rock persona, blowing them up to disorienting proportions. The Australian-born, Sydney-based artist has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Sydney, and Melbourne, and his work belongs to multiple public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, the National Gallery of Victoria, and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Through his imaginative processes, Niesche highlights the power of both illusion and objecthood.
