Brandon Juhasz l Quarter Art
Brandon Juhasz is obsessed with the Internet and its swirling, ever changing raging current of images. Context and intent are always shifting as pictures float around cyber space. He was inspired to use these pictures as his subject, to create three-dimensions out of the two-dimensional digital and photographic realm. Images are objects that stay with us; they are physical - or at least physical in the way they impact our psyche as experienced moments.
In his newest series, "I Can't Promise to Try," Juhasz explores themes of failure and averageness. He employs folded paper dioramas made from photographs culled from seemingly endless online databases of images. Juhasz finds that photography is more akin to folk art in its way of telling a unique and perhaps foggy and or interpreted filtered recollection of the truth.
He sees his work telling the stories of his time, uniquely and ambiguously enough to be both autobiographical and relatable.
Brandon Juhasz is an artist living in Cleveland Ohio. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Bowling Green State University.
