Ragnar Jonasson’s work juxtaposes materials and ideas. Jonasson believes through material you can find a truth and a way to spirituality. The idea of rhythm through processes and visual language can create a meditative state and lead you to a better understanding of yourself and your practice. He uses various methods to get to this state, sculpture, drawing, painting and photography, and his inspiration ranges from pop culture to science.
