Brookhart Jonquil’s sculptures use architectural materials such as steel, mirrors, glass, cement, and fluorescent tubes. Drawing from post-minimal artists such as Gordon Matta-Clark and Robert Smithson, as well as Light and Space figure such as Robert Irwin and James Turrell, Jonquil’s constructions engage reflections and refractions of light to create delicately immaterial forms within physical structures, with a palpable use of gravity and tension. Jonquil’s work draws from the history of Utopian architecture, as well as mathematics, physics, and Plato, to probe the ways that societies as well as individuals grapple with the attempt for perfection.
