Jonathan Pellitteri: Canary in the Coalmine

April 22 - May 27, 2021

Jonathan Pellitteri is an award-winning, North Carolina-based artist working with three dimensional objects and industrial materials. His sculptural and installation practice involves life-size objects and miniature models to engage viewers in curious and explorative ways that stimulate personal narratives and evoke private memories. His exhibition at McMaster Gallery will explore current debates over humanity’s impact on the environment, sustainability, and the exploitation of natural resources. These ideas manifest themselves in objects that illustrate direct observations, comparisons of ancient solutions to similar present day concerns, and hypothetical future events resulting from actions taken in the present.
