Artist Statement

In short, this work explores American identity, focusing on iconic representations of the United States and the myths, clichés, and stereotypes they often come to represent. However, I am also interested in examining this work through the lens of Middle Ground, commonly defined as: an area of compromise or possible agreement between two extreme positions, esp. political ones. It strikes me as odd how complex issues are typically stripped down to two positions. In our present political climate, I am more interested in contemplating the gray areas in between.

Jonathan Clyde Frey is an artist and designer whose work broadly explores the influences of ideology on contemporary culture. Jonathan has earned degrees in art & design from the University of Dayton, the University of Florida, and the Pratt Institute, and is currently an Assistant Professor at Bucknell University.
