Painter Jason John works in the style of Psychological Realism to explore the complexities of identity in relation to memory and ones social world. John’s extraordinarily detailed figures caught in dramatic environment of uneasiness and spatial fluxes are attempts to accurately reflect deeper psychological realities. Oftentimes, figures are partially concealed, thus taking away any personal relationships the viewer might expect. John’s new body of work will be on exhibit in eyeCandy at WWA Gallery, Culver City, until April 27.
