Drought Resistant is the circulation of materials and methods that yields a self-sustaining
practice. This practice is a hearty adaptation, consistently providing stimulation and surprise by
honoring the intrinsic qualities of common materials, whether work piece or waste, found or
fabricated. Each work freezes a moment that ordinarily exists as a fleeting glimpse. My
constructions are as much about haptic engagements with tools and materials as they are about
visual dialogues. Each plant is a literal metaphor that grows out of this process, the float frame
is an physical arena built to negotiate and contain each individual performance.
Jonathan Anzalone has an active workshop in the Richmond district of San Francisco.
His woodshop/art studio makes a wide spectrum of objects in a constant conversation between
furniture and visual art.
