Bikes in the Office
"Bikes in the Office" intends to pick up where reality left off. With surreal interpretations of familiar spaces, artists Jonjo Elliott, Iqi Qoror, and Jay Jones give the viewer a glimpse into their own altered realities.
A native of Indonesia, Iqi Qoror started his career as a professional Visual Artist with a Master’s Degree in Fine Art. His works revolve around the questions of trust, interspersed with fragments of modernity set against his own social experience. Each artwork represents a point of self reflection: “ We live in a catastrophic world and I express my response, my scream, through my works, and I’m constructing a question of our madness.”
Jonjo Elliott is a mixed-media artist working in a range of mediums, from paper and paint to skate ramps and chairs. Working from his studio in the UK, his vibrant works are inspired by the spaces surrounding him and his large scale still life's are intended to bring color and delight into the homes of his collectors.
Jay Jones' current “Beams” series was inspired by the cranes that assemble the next iteration of an urban evolution, with a (not-so-subtle) nod to the 1932 iconic photograph, “Men Atop a Skyscraper." Jones plays with the illusory juxtaposition of weight and weightlessness.“I want to also bring more humor to my work,” hence the distracted man on his phone, unaware of the fate that should soon befall him.
