Deck the Great Hall Artist Talk: Brookhart Jonquil
Each year, the Museum of Fine Arts celebrates the season with a holiday tree placed in the Great Hall, decorated with original pieces created by a leading contemporary artist commissioned for the Museum’s holiday celebration. Join this year’s selected artist, Miami-based sculptor Brookhart Jonquil, who uses industrial materials and geometric precision to explore theories of infinity and utopia, in a talk about his artistic process.
Jonquil was born in Santa Cruz, California and lives and works in Miami, Florida. He received a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010, as well as a Bachelor in Fine Arts and Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of Arizona in 2007. His work is represented by Emerson Dorsch. He states, “I work with primary forces like light, gravity, and tension, creating balanced interactions which initially feel impossible or magical, but in which nothing is being hidden or misdirected, prompting the viewer to a deeper relationship with their own perception.”
