Complex forms and dynamics of mainly nude people, etched in, drawn on or cut out of diverse materials dominate the beautiful imagery of Jason Thielke. The artworks of this American artist seem to be a merge of technical line compositions and wild, almost confused intersecting lines resulting in powerful and delicate images. His signature style reflects ‘the messiness of life and how we are trying to figure things out’. If messiness would always be that beautiful, life could be much easier.
