NEW YORK, NY.- Jonathan Prince's sculptures simultaneously evoke the work of 20th century fine art masters like Constantin Brancusi and Jean Arp, and ancient archeological artifacts. Principally, his work is concerned with exposing the stone's latent power through large-scale, universally iconic forms. Ellipses, spheres and cubes are intentionally interrupted by the artist’s hand to infer a sense of discovery of something ancient.

Prince refers to this body of work as "Fragments". In the series, he suggests a form, but does not fully fabricate the piece. Rather, his partial articulation allows the mind to complete the widely recognizable shapes, asking his audience to be active, rather than passive, viewers. He often exaggerates the "broken" edges by adding gold and palladium leaf. The highlighted texture creates a dynamic tension with the highly polished, sumptuous black stone--Prince's medium of choice. His interest is in creating forms that are a visual marriage of the archaic and the contemporary.

The artist resurrected his passion for sculpture in 2004 after a distinguished and diverse professional career in the arts and sciences. Prince completed a doctorate at Columbia University and post-doctoral studies at the University of Southern California. He has produced feature films and directed numerous computer animated special effects projects ,including significant contributions to an Emmy Award winning CBS television miniseries. He has been involved in several large-scale technology and art installations at such renowned venues as the Smithsonian Institution and holds several design patents for his developments in optical engineering. The artist describes his full-time focus on sculpture as a turning point in his life. According to critic Alexandra Anderson-Spivy, Prince’s return to the studio has produced “a mature body of work, refined in concept and fearless in execution.”

The exhibition will be on view at Cynthia Reeves from April 1 through May 8, 2010.
