Jonathan Metzger: Where I'm From, Where I Want To Be

On View March 28–April 22, 2014

Working in various media, Jonathan Metzger is a young, mid-western man searching for a place. Growing up on the bluffs near the Mississippi River in southern Minnesota, Metzger spent his youth on his parent’s farm. Memories of building fences, raising pole sheds, and completing household chores inspire his current work. Jonathan Metzger received his MFA with honors from University of Kansas in spring of 2013. Currently, Metzger is a visiting assistant professor at Millsaps College in Jackson, MS.

In his newest body of work, anthropomorphized hammers and tea cups borrowed from memories of his father’s work shed or his mother’s kitchen become monlithic portrait subjects.
