Jonathan Trayte

“I’m drawn to the light of a bulb like an insect, its luminance and warmth is enticing, and I like to include one where I can.”

Jonathan Trayte’s sculpture, installation and functional design is informed by our global language of consumption. He reinterprets the natural world creating heavily saturated, surreal facsimiles in many varying materials. The work is a coming together of organic forms and saccharine colours. Glossy synthetic skins of paint give the work a colourful pop status, a chameleon appearance and an edible quality.
