A look back on a selection of works from 'Dystopian Bouquet' by Jason Parker, his most recent exhibition:
What is the meaning of the creative desires that lie within man?
Why in times of strife do we turn to our creativity as a ray of light on a bleak horizon?
Can collaboration bridge divides?
Can we use our creativity as a vehicle for rebirth?
Dystopian Bouquet is a reflection on our apparent need to invoke a creative response in times of despair, chaos, and existential threats.
Colourful Solitary figures are a conduit of expression contrasted against their bleak dystopian-like surroundings. Found in Visually dense scenes complete with strewn artifacts, floral elements, and Jason’s reoccurring pixelation are all vying for our attention much as we find our attention fragmented by the noise of our current culture.
