Artists' Atlas: Mapping Their Journey > Jason Messinger

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.
