Jonathan Prull
March 2 - April 1, 2012

The story of the 1971 skyjacking of Northwest flight 305 has fascinated people for decades as an unsolved crime and has also taken root as a folk legend. The vanishing of the unidentified suspect, nicknamed D.B. Cooper, is the subject of Jonathan Prull’s latest work, Unapologize.

In reality, it is assumed that Cooper parachuted into an undetermined expanse of wilderness between Washington and Oregon. For the artist, Cooper’s leap represents a sublime dissolve to his actions over a landscape oblivious to the mystery of his fate. In a style reminiscent of traditional Chinese landscape painting, Prull uses the impression of vast landscapes as a metaphor for Cooper’s imagined state of mind.

Jonathan Prull is a multidisciplinary artist whose work integrates his interests in experimental film, theater, and traditional storytelling. He received a BFA from the University of Rhode Island and an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania.
