Jon Jaylo

Jon Jaylo's artworks explore a parallel dream world in which everything is ingeniously floating and dancing in a contained universe inspired by dreams and poetry. His pictorial depictions vary in style, technique, and configuration as if he himself is never content with every oeuvre that he has created. They are constantly evolving in both idea and form, gradually ripening together with the artist himself in space and time.

Scaling the aesthetic balance, he narrates deep philosophical thoughts through an imaginative theatrical play of elements, intensely opulent colors that indulge the audience?s sophisticated palate, and presents an artistic challenge for intellectual curiosity and gratification in his compositions. Like dreams that reflect man's desires and fantasies, his works are manifestations of profound knowledge, empirical and metaphysical experience, and ruminative visions here and beyond this world.

In a panoptic perspective, his works are gentle provocations masked and laced with a dream-like spectacle, seductively charming, and mystically inviting as if a puzzle to be solved once the viewer goes inside them. They are not just mere depictions of surreal elements, they are inspired by dreams, subconscious thoughts, direct experiences, and, at times, poignant stories about his family and close friends.

Well-researched and constructed, the general appeal of his works is dashed with enigmatic relations between forms and spatial contexts, penetrating the audience?s psyche with mystical allure and reflective visual impressions, and that, perhaps, is the wonder and beauty of Jon Jaylo?s art. And, like any good story, he allows everyone to soak up and bring out his or her own interpretation of his creation, establishing an intimate rapport between the artist and his audience.

His works have been displayed at Strychnin Gallery Berlin, Primo Marella in Italy, Primae Noctis Switzerland, Sothebys and Christies Auctions in HongKong and Taiwan, Artesan Gallery Singapore, West Gallery & Ayala Museum Philippines, Beinart Gallery Australia, Stephen Romano Gallery New York, Copro Gallery, Distinction Gallery and California Center for the Arts, USA.
