Jonathan Lyndon Chase & John Altoon - i-D

Kohn Gallery showed two artists in conversation. John Altoon was working in the 60s, and Jonathan Lyndon Chase is very much of today, but both explore the various boundaries of the body through their dynamic work. Altoon’s ink on board drawings, comprised of chaotic zig-zags, sit alongside Lyndon Chase’s color drenched studies of queer black men.

In keeping with the market trend of the past couple of years, there was also significant interest in works by artists of colour. Representatives of several museums rushed to Los Angeles-based Kohn Gallery’s booth to bid on Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s Dawn Embrace (2019), which sold for an undisclosed amount to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, while another of the young painter’s works went to ICA Miami. Roberts Projects sold works by Kehinde Wiley and Jeffrey Gibson ranging from $150,000 to $300,000 and notes “multiple institutional reserves”.

Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s paintings sometimes speak to him. They tell him what direction they’d like to take, how heavy the line should be, their color and composition. The figures in his most recent paintings asked him for a little more space. “The paintings were kind of like, ‘Hey, Jon, we need to become bigger,’” he explains. So he went for a much grander scale, responding to their call for “more presence and power” by creating compositions that are nearly 10 by 10.5 feet.

Secret Gay Box features over fifteen artists who have navigated their sexuality through artistic expression. Like Wolf’s childhood box, this space will be one where art hides in plain sight, even where people might not think to look. The space itself as well as the artworks in it embrace the creativity that it can take to effectively conceal oneself, but also the beauty that can occur in freedom from whatever ‘box’ one might have. All humans have their own “secret gay box”, either conscious or subconscious. This show, the artists represented, and the act of creating a personal art collection are a way to simultaneously fill the box or open it for those around you.

Coinciding with his new exhibition, Sheets, at Los Angeles’ Kohn Gallery, queer artist Jonathan Lyndon Chase has shared some of his evocative pieces with Out. Using base sheets as a canvas for many of the show’s works, Chase explains how our beds are central to our lives in that we begin and end our day in them, and how they act as a play on words for him representing the fabric of society and spatial reality.

The figures of Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s pictures have prepared a performance for us — but we’ve stumbled upon them during rehearsal. Theirs is a dance of shapeshifting voyeurism — they’re not quite ready to be seen but relish in our gaze nonetheless. Caught in a moment of nudity between costume changes, they cast coy glances that are accusatory and inviting at the same time.
