RaWk - The Art of Jason Newsted
Cultural Council of Palm Beach County
As Grammy Award winning artist Jason Newsted says, “I shifted from crazy colorful music to crazy colorful pictures.” Beginning to make visual artseriously in 2004, Newsted manipulates canvases and upcycles ordinary materials. He imagines landscapes and figures that come to light froman unlimited color palate. His figures seem otherworldly and evoke a sense of frenetic emotion and in some of his work he has been influenced by Outsider Art. Newsted also works with words and layers. Using both hands, he scrawls out names or phrases and then layers paint to cleverly disguise them from the viewer. At times he twists and turns the canvas repeatedly, painting and painting, until he obtains his desired effect. Heavily influenced later by the great masters of modern art, Newsted has found his niche and an expressionistic awareness of contemporary art. Nick Korniloff curated this exhibition.
