Artist Statement

"Fortify" is a new compositional attempt for me, utilizing the animal's shape and color as design elements. Nature is perfect in so many ways and one of my favorite realms to explore as an artist is form. Utilizing the shape of the starfish to construct a sphere, arguably a perfect shape exemplifies perfection achieved through union and cooperation.

"Fortify" also highlights the beauty of diversity. The diversity of life on this planet is what makes the oceans sparkle with color and thrive in an interconnected chain that links everything together. A humble example of the varying forms that related organisms can take, this piece is made more beautiful by that diverse quality that exists amongst all life on this planet.

Artist Bio

Jon Ching grew up steeped in natural beauty on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, which formed the foundation of his deep fascination with the natural and wild world. A self-taught painter, Jon’s devoted art practice and detailed realism is inspired by the interconnectedness of nature. While dedicated to the minute idiosyncrasies of flora and fauna, Jon’s work is a surreal imagining of what limitless wonders and combinations nature can produce. New creatures and symbioses emerge in his meticulously rendered oil paintings, exemplifying the endless potential of life on Earth. His work is often driven by his personal desire to find a balance between the human and natural worlds, exploring themes of symbiosis and searching for connections, physical and metaphorical, across nature’s kingdoms. Highlighting man-made threats to the natural world is a regular theme in his work to raise awareness of and evoke compassion for the kingdoms of life. Jon’s ultimate hope is to inspire love and admiration for the universally unique beauty and intrigue of our world.
