Divination 8

Divination 8, monoprint, 2008

Jon Gourley grew up in Des Moines, IA. He received a BA from the University of Iowa in 2005.

Of his work, Gourley writes, "Divinations. Remixes. I once told someone that loneliness is the human condition.  She replied with unintended irony that I should speak for myself.  Words inadequate. A language of symbols generated, appropriated, modified: a reduction of original context. Operating as two minds: definitional, synthetic. Configured into schema of personal history; like tea-leaves, revealing the future. An altered function: graphic, narrative, but with no intention of communication.  Any understanding gained through familiarity."
