Preview: Jason Limon Offers Blood and Nectar in New ShowJuxtapoz // Sunday, 10 Oct 2010
Texas native Jason Limon takes viewers on a visual journey to a land inhabited by odd, albeit friendly, characters that take on a narrative quality when viewed as a collection. His new acrylic series, Blood/Nectar, explores his fascination with nature and organic life forms.
Blood/Nectar will open at NYC’s Bold Hype Gallery this Thursday, October 14th. Here are a few of our favorites in the show, but you may view a full preview at Bold Hype online.
About the artist:
Jason Limon was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1973. He first showed his artistic expression at a fairly young age doodling characters and sceneries inspired by his bustling neighborhood and surroundings.
He entered the field of commercial graphic design in 1995 acquiring comprehensive knowledge of type, color and composition. Following twelve years of commitment to producing award winning logos and designs he then turned his focus and concentration to where his heart truly began: developing artwork by hand and brush, no longer by the clicks of a mouse.
He is currently creating gallery work and commercial illustrations, some of which can be seen in Communication Arts, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, American Illustration, Print Regional Design and Graphics.
The opening reception for Blood/Nectar is Thursday October 14th from 6 – 9pm
Open to the public; Jason Limon will be present
