Day 248: Jason Hugger

I started drawing in perspective and realism in my early teens and received a scholarship to attend the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1991. Graduating Cum Laude in 1995, I settled in Phoenix, Arizona to a new and exciting art scene in Phoenix.
My paintings and silverpoint drawings reflect my love of still life and landscape which I combine to create surrealistic desolate and isolated desert landscapes. I am a veteran and live with my wife in Phoenix.
Painting for me is an exploration. When I paint a still-life I am not just describing the objects in front of me, I am also exploring the scene as if I were going there in person. By using extremes in scale and perspective, color and light, I create drama in my paintings and silverpoint drawings. My subject matter are found and recycled items such as rusty metal bits and old broken things.
