Jonni Cheatwood Biography
B. 1986, Thousand Oaks, CA, USA. Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Playing a strategic game upon the surface of his stitched canvases, Cheatwood plays a set of decisions in a step-by-step rejoinder to each possible move. The process begins with a sewing machine, then to the floor, the walls and back to the floor, as he simultaneously moves from canvas to canvas, leaving behind the detritus of his own accidental marks and spilled materials, leaving his history as if he is formulating his own autobiography with fabric with bold colors, clean lines and raw power that all merge into a rough and ready approach, that somehow remains elegant and visually seductive.
Cheatwood was born in 1986 in Thousand Oaks, CA, USA. He attended Arizona State University. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Cheatwood has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions globally including at the Rema Hort Mann Foundation, New York, NY, USA, and at various galleries internationally.
