CV/Docs     All Jonathan Seliger    
Jonathan  Seliger

Born in 1955, Jonathan Seliger graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton in the year 1978, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Since his first solo exhibition in the year 1993, his work has been shown extensively in galleries and museums throughout the world. His neo-Pop sculptures and installations provide viewers with a compelling re-contextualization of familiar, everyday objects such as traffic barriers and recognizably-branded shopping bags. The often-whimsical nature of Seliger’s work belies the sculptor’s meticulous and highly detailed technical approach to its creation. His art, uniquely hand-crafted, succeeds in creating the illusion of having been mass-produced, thus bringing an echo of consumerism into the traditionally rarified environment of fine art gallery and museum.
