Jason Messinger’s ceramic and porcelain tile murals and sculpture emphasize the beauty and humor of maps, blueprints, postcards, and directions. With carved surfaces and layered glazes, he invents his own language of symbols and imagery. Messinger inverts the concept of map into a Platonic realm of the imaginary.
Based on the "Ley Lines" idea that there are lines of 'force' circling the globe, and the intersection of these lines are areas of mystical energy and spiritual significance.
Hand cast and had carved tiles with hand painted glazes and gold luster glaze (uses real gold in formulation). Ships with wall cleats and wood frame backers to project tiles 1.5" off wall. Work is modular - can be displayed in any configuration or sequence.
