Jonathan Brewer

Jonathan Mccready Brewer (b. 1979, Clearwater, Florida), lives and works in Oslo, Norway and Los Angeles, California. He studied at the Stadelschule in Frankfurt am Main and the Oslo Academy of Fine Art where he received his Master in Fine Art in 2009. Brewer, through his work, asserts that orthodox chronologies of art historical "schools" are fictional. Relationships between art historical periods are infinitely more complex than the overly simplified, modern idea of advancement that is still fundamental in contemporary art. His work has been shown at the Sammlung Flackenberg / Phonix Stiftung, in Hamburg, Germany, Fabrik Gallery, Eindhoven, Neatherlands, the Stadtische Galerie, Waldkraiburg, Germany, and Galleri LNM, Oslo, Norway. He is
currently preparing for a solo exhibition at Les Atelier Vortex in Dijon, France, where he will explore the travel writings of war correspondent Alan Morehead.
