Emerson Dorsch presents Brookh art Jonquil's In a Perfect World.

On view will be a ne w series of large scale sculptures rendered in wooden scaffolding and intri cately angled mirrors\, which combine to create illusory forms in the immat erial realm.


Jonquil works with the material\, virtual \, and phantasmic mechanisms of reflection. In his statement\, Jonquil disc usses reflection and the relation of virtual or ideal space to the constant ly changing world. Made of angled mirrors and bowed rods\, his four sculptu res hang at the cardinal points of the room. Each sculpture has a unique ph ysical structure\, yet\, in their multiple reflections\, the structures pro duce an immaterial form that is echoed in all four sculptures. Jonquil writ es\, "it is as if together the four sculptures create a proof of the existe nce of a fifth shape which is nowhere present."

Jonquil is in terested in the concept of Ether\, relating it to other ideals\, or ideas o f existence outside of the physical world\, like Plato's Allegory of the Go ld\, Eistein's Theory of Relativity\, Michel Foucault's heterotopias and Bu ckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Maps.

Jonquil's recent major exhi bitions include 2012's Inverted Night at the de la Cruz Collection in Miami \; a major installation in collaboration with Yara and Chat Travieso of You ng Arts for the 2012 Art Live Fair in Miami\; and a large-scale sculpture\, Lumber Icosahedron\, in Young Curators\, New Ideas IV\, organized by Mr. a nd Mrs. Amani Olu in New York in 2011.
