poster for Jon Pylypchuk "for all the love in the world"

This event has ended.

Jon Pylypchuk creates half-human and half-animal creatures and their universe with collaged drawings and paintings, mixed-media sculptures and installations. Being made of impoverished materials, fabric, paper pieces, glue, resin, etc., these creatures embrace pathos while seeming humorous, lovable and somehow cute. At first sight, they look childish, but they certainly carry an adult sense of melancholy. With his mastery of collage technique, Pylypchuk explores the contemporary human condition as well as human interaction, and describes them theatrically. Behind the stage, there are also Pylypchuk’s insights into social themes such as violence, war, injustice and isolation. By reflecting these concerns, his work has both aspects of aggressiveness and vulnerability, and cynicism and purity.
