About the Show
Jon Measures is known for his mixed media works that combine photography, digital process, collage and painting that depict the urban environment from a unique perspective. Los Angeles, where Jon has made his home for the past 24 years has been the subject for the majority of his work.
For the Place show Jon undertook a road trip across the US and back in hopes of gaining a fuller understanding of home and how Los Angeles relates to the US as a whole. The photography from the trip taking in many cities, from Chicago to New York and smaller towns like Louisville, Kentucky form the raw material and inspiration for this latest body of work.
As well as photographs of cities, the manmade spaces enroute; roads, gas stations, electrical pylons, the vastness of the American landscape, even GPS and Google maps became an influence on the work for this exhibition.
