Jonathan Prince, Turbulence.

LENOX, MASS.- “Fluidity of Light” at Sohn Fine Art includes Jonathan Prince’s smaller sculptures as well as his mixed-media works on paper from his Turbulence series. Prince’s works continuously push the boundaries of how materials can behave. His forms contain both foundation and fluidity. The sculptures included in this exhibition are as much about how light interacts with the piece as the sculptural form itself. As Prince states, “These pieces are really about the liquidity of light rather than the liquidity of matter.” They are works of meditation in both process and concept. Prince’s ongoing investigation of spirituality is echoed in the pair of reflective liquid state sculptures on view titled “Inhale” and “Exhale”.

Works on paper and sculptures on display from the Turbulence series explore the ways in which an external force can exert enough energy to disrupt what is seemingly perfect and organized. Each of these pieces begin with a perfected geometric form. Through varying degrees of external pressure, movement and human interaction, the forms are compressed and distorted in response. Sculptures from the Liquid State series explore extended conversations around geometric forms that focus our attention to the liquidity of light rather than of matter. Each work’s curvatures dance with light to create a liquid appearance.

Prince’s solo exhibition at Chesterwood “Elemental Matters” focuses on the mutability of metal. Included are Prince’s most recent metal works, which are often mistaken for wood, stone or liquid. This fluidity of matter explores the idea that things we see may not always be what they appear. Though monumental in structure, rooted in perfect geometry and made of metal, Prince’s sculptures possess an innate vulnerability. Formally, the liminal sculptures mimic nature but they contextually explore our connection between our inner and outer selves. Cracks and breaks remind us of the fragility in nature and humanity. When the outer form is broken, we discover something beautiful and unique on the inside. Each have a distinct story and their placements on the grounds of Chesterwood help bring those narratives to life.

Born in New York City, Prince has been living and working in The Berkshires of Massachusetts for the last two decades. He creates his masterpieces in his state-of-the-art studio and home, Berkshire House, which spans 23,000 square feet. After an extensive career in medicine, as well as having spearheaded various companies dedicated to the advancement of internet and media technologies, Prince returned to his passion for sculpture in 2002. His background in science, technology, and medicine are uniquely reflected in his practice as a sculptor, as each work, both in methods of fabrication and precision, bear the hallmarks of these fields of study.
