Coburn Projects Presents Jason Dussault latest collection "SELF–CENTERED" at VOLTA NY, Booth F04 March 2 – 6 2016
Does art imitate life or vice versa? One truth is that art is a reflection of ego, a mirror that projects one’s creative process onto the world. Throughout history, whether etched by the hand of an individual or by the hands of many, art tells personal or collective stories. Those seeking to express emotion they hope that another recognizes their voice and conjoins with recognition. Others might deny their creation to be forged for anything but thought provocation, yet, the understanding of struggle is the opposite of denial. Hence, we are left with the core, self-aware-ness, and what better medium than the self-portrait to engage ego, pride, fear and doubt? Once these contradictions take center stage we truly position ourselves in defence of our vulnerability.
Jason Dussault has tackled this ancient set of complexities by putting his triumphs and shortcomings on display. In this new project, Self–Centered, the artist brings all his dynamic emotions to a focal point that orbits around self. Jason began this series of works by looking inward first and by addressing the demons that ride on the shoulders of his creativity. He realized that time, consideration, and thoughtfulness are all subject to the driving force of artistic output and they all suffer for it at some point. By etching quotes and phrases into aluminium using a knife, one of the most rudimentary tools of expression, Jason uses language to inspire his latest instalment of mosaic pieces. Beginning with powerful scripture, he then applies the fractured ceramics around the carefully set letters, all the while leaving a void space for self-reflection.
Jason Dussault lives and works between New York and his hometown Vancouver. Jason re-envisioned one of the most primitive yet connected mediums in art history, the mosaic.
