Jonny Detigerís bold, colorful expositions of pop, fashion drenched landscapes lure us using the language of advertising. Detigerís upends the promise, however, presenting his idealized narratives with a sardonic wink, hinting at their shallow frivolity while simultaneously embracing it. Titles and slogans such as, ĎDog in Styleí and ĎHair Wreckerí play on the absurdity of media images and their purported desirability. Detigerís figures are generalized and iconic, familiar scenes which we all recognize and yet have no personal connection.

His stylized fantasy world is inhabited by known types rather than individuals; often the figuresí faces are equipped only with a mouth to complete their aloof indistinction. Detiger, however, replaces fashionís cool apathy and exclusivity with whimsy, buoying and transforming his critique into a vibrant, visual ride.

Detigerís hallucinatory backgrounds and flush color palette create an amorphous visual setting for the subtle interactions of his figures, firmly setting his happy tone. This jocular environment simultaneously references the frenetic and chaotic nature of our media obsessed culture, which bombards us with empty imagery. In Detigerís hands this portentous obsession is transformed to contentment just shy of complicity. We are aware of our vain foibles and yet not asked to give them the full weight of guilt but to put them in their rightful, playful place. Detigerís paintings rather than scathing indictments are lyrical musings on the pop shallowness of advertising culture, allowing us to bask in the colorful vapidity of an idealized world of comfort yet dispensing with the naivete.
