Jonathan Rosen畢業於VCU Brandcenter 廣告學系,過去於廣告界擔任創意總監的經歷使他深切地感受到文字、影像和宣傳對人們產生的影響力。現為全職藝術家的他,以概念性的拼貼與挪用藝術手法創造出夢想來揭開每個人深埋心中的渴望。以「I WANT」為主題的系列為Rosen由個人的收集品出發創作,運用大量收集的現成物拼貼與鏤空的現代感字體展現視覺衝擊,將「I WANT」作為可以隨人們慾望不斷擴張的題材,藉由作品呈現脆弱卻真實的自白,為觀者提供一個隱蔽的空間,反思自身渴求,他所收藏的不僅是物品,更是不敢與人分享的企盼。他相信這些慾望如果不被挖掘出來,它們絕不會有力量打破緘默。2015年11月底Jonathan Rosen與巴黎時尚概念品牌Colette合作發表創作,適逢巴黎遭遇恐怖攻擊,他將具有巴黎美好憧憬的明信片作排列,再搭配「I WANT PEACE」呼應巴黎人當下心聲,以創作與時事作連結,塑造成一種無形的力量。

As an emergent artist, Jonathan Rosen has established his stable and recognizable style in the early stage of creating. Seizing the power of visuals and words, at the same time, delicately observing the inner part of people. Rosen exposes the desire that people tend to hide in the deep of mind through collaging and carving away the words “I WANT …”. Leaving an unfulfilled dream both conceptually and in structure. Rosen’s work grant viewers a safe space to reflect on their own desires. He believes love is the basis of wanting. If these remain untold, they will never have the power to manifest.
