‘My art is an interrogation of western culture’s beliefs and values, and an exploration of the tension between faith and doubt, physical desire and spiritual longing.  It can be read as an articulation of the uncertainty and irreconcilable antagonisms inherent in our existence.

The dominant strategy employed in my work is the appropriation of images and text from film, magazines, pulp fiction, and pornography, co-opting their cultural and symbolic associations so that they become ambivalent signifiers of moral emptiness, scepticism, and self disgust.  The viewer is no longer a passive consumer but a voyeur and participant, implicated in a nihilistic culture’s obsessions, perversions, and hunger for meaning.'

Jonathan Alibone is an artist based in the United Kingdom, and is currently both a resident and curator at the Artist's Sanctuary in Northampton, England.  He has exhibited widely and his work features in collections in the UK, Europe, Russia and North America.
