Jonathan Elliott’s recent work spans the broad range of human emotion; it shows a sliver of what we as people are capable of feeling and doing – from innocence to corruption. Vicissitude, meaning: 1. The quality of being changeable; 2. Changes in circumstances; uncertainties or variations of fortune or outcome. Jonathan explores vicissitude by manipulating the colors, backgrounds, depth and details of his images. With this process, Elliott uncovers alternatives to what the photographs he bases his work on might otherwise depict.
As a photographer, Elliott almost never photographs people. “It just doesn’t work for me. By contrast, my digital work is almost completely people-centric”. A longtime resident of the Pacific Northwest, Jonathan Elliott has been interested in the arts since early childhood. He most commonly expresses his art through photography and vector art manipulation, and has been focusing primarily on erotica, as of late.
