Rehs Contemporary Galleries, Inc., New York City
The man is emerging from the shadows as he struggles to shuck off the shell that was once his armor but now seems a burden. He is tired of the self-contained darkness and emptiness as he strives for the light and unknown. Does he have the strength to carry out this Sisyphean feat or will he be crushed? Is he prepared for what lies beyond the confines of his shell? He seems paralyzed by fear, not even sure of what to do.

Jason was inspired by his uncle, Joe Brady, to become an artist. He began training in classical Russian academic drawing and painting with Vyacheslav Shevchenko in 2008. In 2012 Anthony Waichulis accepted him as an apprentice of Ani Art Academy. Jason's charcoal drawings are muddled glimpses into his convoluted reality.
