Jonathan Seliger, born 1955 in New York.
Jonathan Seliger’s reverence for everyday objects places him squarely in the Pop Art tradition, with an intricate fabrication technique reminiscent of the ultimate West Coast fetish movement and a postmodern preoccupation with simulacra. Through subtle shifts in scale, color, surface, and even language, Seliger’s constructions are imbued with poetry, humor, and social critique. For his luxury handbags, he perfectly reproduces symbols of ultra-luxury and consumerism-retail bags from Prada, Chanel, Bulgari-in a blue collar sheen of automotive enamel over bronze.
