Columbus Museum of Art and Design features a new show at the Gallery at Hotel Indigo showcasing the digital artwork of Jonathan Earley through March 30.
The works on display have all been created digitally, using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and are representative of Earley’s background in the digital arts. “I have never been one to get along with traditional materials such as oil, acrylic or watercolor,” said Earley. “The digital medium has come quite naturally to me. I find that working with purely data driven elements, not influenced by physical laws such as chemical makeup, density, gravity, or evaporation, allows me to much more precisely execute my vision.”
Jonathan grew up in Columbus and graduated college from Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, California. Since graduating, Earley has produced a diverse variety of work. His professional work includes modeling prominent game characters in Tim Schaffer’s Brütal Legend, having animation work aired on Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba, creating 3d visual effects for European television commercials, and shooting video footage for Nylon Magazine.
Earley runs a Columbus-based web design company, Joust.co, and teaches multiple digital design and interactivity courses at Ivy Tech.
The public is invited to attend a meet-the-artist reception on Friday, February 15 from 6:00–7:30 p.m.
