Jason Kowalski
Jason Kowalski was raised in the Upper Midwest and moved to Laguna Beach, CA in 2005 to study painting at Laguna College of Art and Design. In 2009, Jason received his Bachelors degree in Fine Art from Laguna College of Art and Design. Recently, Jason, his wife Maria and young son Wyeth, relocated to the front range of the Rocky Mountains in Monument, Colorado. There he finds inspiration in the beauty of the mountain landscape to the west, foothills and rock outcroppings to the north, and rolling plains to the east. In talking about his work, Jason states, “I am interested in objects that have a past. Their story is often forgotten and their characteristics of being worn out, broken and old are commonly seen as unattractive. My goal is to create art that challenges viewers to see the unique beauty found in worn and castaway objects.” Artist Statement I am interested in objects that have a past. Their story is often forgotten and their characteristics of being worn out, broken and old are commonly seen as unattractive. I value nostalgia and believe that every antique has a fascinating story. Preservation dose not always equal restoration. To honor the stories of the past, I paint places/objects as they exist in the world today. There is beauty in the undone, the abandon, and in the shadows of a greatness that once was. Born Boynton Beach, Florida, September 8, 1986 Resides in Monument, Colorado Education B.F.A.
