John Espinosa’s work is in numerous public and private collections including the Whitney Museum of Contemporary Art; Perez Art Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art and The New Museum of Contemporary Art.

Much of his work often involves nature and animals in general.  Thus it can be easy to tie his art to ideas of ecology and the environment.  However, Espinosa’s artwork also really seems to be rather personal.  In his artwork he is often concerned with ideas of knowledge and belief, but particularly the way in which they exist between people.  Several of his sculptures depict animals joined by a jagged electric-like structure, as if communicating or interacting through it.  At times the animals seem frightened or aggressive and other times as if in the middle of a trance.  Yet they are all still joined, perhaps a reference to shared belief systems.
