Artist Jason Messinger creates ceramic art that straddle the cool allure of pure abstraction and the hot recognition of representation. Approaching ceramic tile with a painter's concerns and a sculptors experience, the artist 's multi-tile works are designed to be modular, allowing any arrangement and in any sequence. Mounting system allows the owner to reset the mural, thus reset the 'narratives'. Using a variety of techniques, the artist makes letters dance into and out of comprehension; turns clock-work gears into vast constructions of complexity; re-imagines the pragmatic construction of utility poles into startling signifiers of organic beauty, and turns circles into burning suns.
