Jonathan Latiano’s installation “Points of Contention” is an explosion of what appears to be crystalline growth from the wooden floorboards of a gallery in the School 33 Art Center in Baltimore. It’s actually made from plastic, PVC pipes, and styrofoam. Its his way of calling into question the continued production of synthetic polymers, resins, and plastics versus the long-term impact on the environment. Jonathan was born and raised amongst the rural hills of Bucks County, Pennsylvania graduated from the Moravian College in Bethlehem with a degree in Studio Art.
