ABOUT Jason Garcia: Atlas
Atlas explores the human experience of assigning meaning to objects, the relationship of the viewer to my public work and hermetic conversations within the work itself. Paintings reference my murals across Denver. Inspired by an indigenous motif found throughout the Americas, traditionally woven Ojo de Dios were installed at work, in a home or along a path as a blessing to request guidance. While painting those murals, it has become clearer that the meaning of blessing and guidance are autonomously created through the omnipotent filter of the autobiographical experience. Potentially separate from fact, each transient viewer governs their own truth, a definitive uncertainty. As a result, the Ojo de Dios pattern distorts and transforms, becoming a tapestry of sorts. The paintings record an ideological landscape that’s collectively traversed. A warping topographical repetition of color gradation distorts. Similarly, Street View images of the murals are sampled and remixed. Pigment collages on silk document a singular moment within the experience of viewing a mural. Draping silk emphasizes a sentiment of the changing same; the meaning of an object transforming over the course of time. Atlas is a catalog of attempts to contribute to mapping a landscape we collectively navigate together. – Jason Garcia
