Aeons-Tulpa – A Jondix Exhibit
Emily at Raking Lights projects emailed me the other day with a really awesome new exhibit by Jondix. His solo installation will be in Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society in LA, which is a really cool place for him to showcase his work, considering his preference for Buddhist iconography.
The installation, called Aeons-Tulpa, will have an opening night of April 13th, but will be on display throughout 2013, with special events and viewings. Despite Jondix being a very well established tattooer and artist, this is actually his first ever solo exhibit, so it’s kind of a big deal. The press release describes the whole exhibit perfectly:
The installation configuration, influenced by cosmology, represents Jondix’s metaphysical being. Nine prints are arranged in rows and columns of three to create the shape of a square, with the tenth print displayed off to the side. Central to the installation is the idea of energy and connection, where each of the ten laser-etched prints are not only physically connected by string but also spiritually connected to the artist. The iconography is a confluence of motifs with Jondix’s signature mystical imagery and Eastern-influenced patterning. His visual lexicon borrows from Eastern philosophies and incorporates auspicious symbols, deities and ritualistic objects combined with allusions to personal fantasy and science fiction.
This looks like it will be a really awesome installation to see, so if you live nearby, I’d definitely recommend it. Here are the opening night details:
Opening Reception: April 13, 2013 | 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
