Jon Napoles: Devil City

In the exhibition Jon Napoles: Devil City, a world is built around a strange cast of mammalian creatures, jovial yet abrupt speech bubbles, and appropriated imagery from bathroom stalls and bar culture.

Around seven years ago, Jon Napoles’ artistic practice emerged out of a side job flipping houses. Today, he is a self-described Southern Fauve, painting vivid themes of revelry on reclaimed window panes. His media also include photo-transfers and acrylic on panel. In the exhibition Jon Napoles: Devil City, a world is built around a strange cast of mammalian creatures, jovial yet abrupt speech bubbles, and appropriated imagery from bathroom stalls and bar culture. Working in the manner of DIY and punk artists like Raymond Pettibon, Napoles mines his personal narrative as subject matter for his work. Observations of bar patrons and friends enjoying “high times” are evident in works such as #395 and #396, while the Grim Reaper depicted in #392 seems to portend imminent hangover and hardship.

More recently, Napoles has begun to explore possibilities in texture, stratified layers, and destruction in works like Shooting target 6/pre shot and Shooting target 5/post shot, the latter of which was shot with a gun and repaired by the artist. Jon Napoles has exhibited in Atlanta, Georgia and throughout Central Florida. This is his first museum exhibition.
