About this piece

Emerging Artist - Jon Wall

"Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence" - Alan Watts

My practice predominently sits within the confines of theology, the philosophical debate of the nature of god. The innate desire to hack reality and find a deeper meaning to existence is fundamental to the human experience and has been questioned by philosophers, religions, scientists, astrologists, and artists since the beginning of human consciousness.

My practice spans across these branches of knowledge, referencing scientific discoveries such as quantum entanglement, which suggests that quantum particles transcent the laws of time and physics, famously described by Einstein as "spooky action at a distance". In addition to this, I look to my Celtic heritage and the use of the Celtic knot, which represents love, eternity, and trinity, as well as reflecting on personal spiritual incidences surrounding divine synchronicity, described by Carl Jung as the meaningful connection between the subjective and objective world. These discoveries, beliefs, theories, and experiences are all unified into conceptual artworks endowed with feeling and drama.

I take inspiration from a broad range of academia and I make artistic contributions to the findings within these fields. By reflecting on how physicists and mathematicians use diagrams and equations to comprehend higher dimenstions.
