Jonathan Saiz, a Colorado native, studied at Parsons School of Design and Maryland Institute College of Art. In 2012, Saiz painted “live” at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in conjunction with the exhibition “A Day in Pompeii.”
Colorado landscapes, rural textures, wildflowers and ice cream: “Soda Shop Be Bop” is a sculptural trigger of the things Jonathan loves as a Denver native. These wood forms are built at his father’s woodworking shop and live somewhere in between nostalgic whimsy and architectural cubism. They aren’t created with an intention to trigger a specific feeling, but assembled, rearranged, and added to until the moment when they spark with an indefinable and intuitive narrative.
