JASON STOUT: THROWN FROM THE STORM
Ground Floor Gallery + Studios / 942 4th Ave. S. November 5, 2016 - December 16, 2016
Explore the vivid works of Jason Stout's new series where societal history and current events wrap up into a hot pocket of precision and paint disguised as eye candy--or rather a big toe?!
"Cloud compositions deal with the idea of conflict and turbulence, both domestic and abroad. These clouds also double as nebulas, contracting and expanding energy around the idea of conflict. These works deal with notions of political strife coexisting with environmental concerns, and create compositions of smaller troubled environments coexisting in larger yet equally troubled ones. There are fragmented figurative elements existing in and outside of these clouds, as well as tools, weapons, and vices. These fragments serve as visual metaphors that address specific narratives from our modern time."
- Jason Stout (2016)
