‘The Animals’ is a 25-minute film shot with video and 8mm film. It tells a story of repetition and regeneration as human and animal characters traverse and explore a landscape in a world without houses and technology, looking for a sense of contentment and purpose.
Jon Claytor lives and works in Sackville. His figurative based paintings and new media work revolve around the delicate tightrope we walk as human beings; how contrasting emotions often intersect and diverge when least expected and result in some very strange unions. The work moves between mediums but is united by the concept that each emotion exists in counterpart with its equal and opposite emotion and that every idea is joined to its opposite meaning. Jon has exhibited from LA to Tel Aviv and most recently at Parentheses Gallery in Halifax.
