People might already be familiar with the name Jonathan Latiano. That is because he made waves earlier this year with a series of crystal-like sculptures making up his Points of Contention installation. Consistently inspired by the world of natural sciences, Jonathan Latiano uses his knowledge in the areas of biology, astronomy, physics and geology to inform his stunning artworks.
Born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and based in Baltimore, Maryland, Jonathan Latiano's work "evokes tensions of temporality and permanence, physicality and ephemerality, destruction and creation, stasis and kinesis, and fragility and strength," as profoundly put by Beautiful Decay. He writes, "The pieces that I create contrast abstracted human intuition with the reality of our natural environment. I strive to emphasize the areas that exist in-between the boundaries of defined regions."
