John Anthony Forno is a Gold Coast multidisciplinary artist whose work draws from childhood memories through the vehicles of play, environment, scale and nostalgia. These memories are bridges between past and present driving an ongoing inquiry into the relationship between play and its effects on self-esteem. John references a range of disciplines and ideas including psychology, gestalt theory and 80’s and 90’s popular culture. Whilst not defined by any particular medium, he frequently employs ready-made materials and found objects reminiscent of his youth. Through a process of play and self-discovery he recontextualise materials and theoretical research to form visual motifs, ritual acts and symbols synonymous with childhood and adolescence.
