Jonathan Treviño

Jonathan Treviño (b.1989) earned a BFA with Honors in Photography from Parsons The New School for Design’s Art, Media & Technology program in 2013 while concurrently studying Jewelry Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, working as a fashion photography assistant for clients ranging from VOGUE, Dazed Magazine, CLASH, and Sephora before working as Studio Manager, Producer, and Photographer for clients such as NIKE, Victory Journal, Highsnobiety, and Juxtapoz for Art Basel Miami.

Trevino’s multi-disciplinary artworks function as spiritual investigations into the construction of American identity and the absurdity of the quest for self-perfection represented in glamour and luxury as extensions of colonial religious values and notions of The New in art. Through works ranging from video installation, performance, found object sculptures, illustration, and portrait photography, Treviño uses contemporary iconography and art history to analyze the generational effects of Western religion, philosophy, and law upon spiritual family relationships, particularly between parents, children, and LGBT individuals in the city of San Antonio, while meditating on Earth matter as memetic sensory pathways toward understanding the numinous reveries and longings of proletariat life and toward accessing ancestral memories about the worlds we used to live in; spiritual experiences which may reveal themselves to us in solitude, in sleep, through the screen, and in the city after dark.
