Jon-Paul Villegas creates sculptures and environments that are meant to explore the possibilities and limits of our contemporary notions of objecthood, culture, space and place. In addition to traditional three dimensional materials, Villegas frequently uses secondary materials such as text, photography, video and digital software to poke restlessly at the structural underpinnings upon which we organize our notions of thingness, identity and categorical propriety.
