Jonathan Brett Artist's Statement
My work has been progressing for the last twenty five years as a self-taught abstract
expressionist in the medium of acrylics.

Deep and rich colours influence my emotion on the canvas, and I choose strong vibrant colours to
evoke strong sensations from the viewer.

I have been studying my Ojibwe heritage, drawing from it and creating spectacular images of
native abstract designs. These images have spurred me on to create more bold and intense
imagery. My work has been inspired by Norval Morrisseau, who is my hero in the First Nations art
world. Undefined lines of colour shown to be in fugue - but when the human eye starts to focus on
my work, it receives a beautiful story never seen before.

Through absolute pain is when one will only truly feel joy and peace.

Jonathan lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
