Biography

J.J. Garfinkel draws on a variety of visual sources, such as “plants, rocks, gates, and nests,” to create abstract paintings that reference both organic and synthetic architecture. He carefully layers oil and acrylic in compositions that merge biomorphic, colored forms, creating an illusion of depth and an internal architecture. “Primitive and technological constructions fuse into a framework engulfed by organic growth,” he says. “I reach the final image when the natural and the synthetic combine and when these elements fluctuate between discord and harmony.”
