Jonathan Talit

Jonathan Talit is an artist based in Somerville, MA. His work is informed by horror movie special effects and personal ideas of comfort, pleasure, and domesticity. Using materials like clay, spray foam, melted candies, wax, and paper, he pairs anthropomorphic sculptures with discrete household objects to create an environment that’s convincingly lived-in. The result is an awkward remixing of sympathy and sickness, embarrassment and confidence, and the relatable with the uncanny.
