Jason Mowry, “Amor Fati”
Opening Reception: November 9th, 6-8 pm
November 9th – December 8th, 2019
Haven Gallery is pleased to present “Amor Fati”, a solo exhibition of new work by Jason Mowry. “Amor Fati” will include seven new gauche and watercolor paintings that weave together symbols and narratives stemming from ancient mythologies. Often finding inspiration from folklore, legends and the natural world, Mowry balances the relationship between humans and animals as a way of embracing the metamorphoses of many antiquital figures and further recounting their timeless tales. Lowry depicts these chronicles with a unique palette and distinctive stylization of the human figure creating readily identifiable histories grounded in contemporaneous times.
ABOUT Jason Mowry
Jason grew up between the art museums and comic book shops, combining the rhythms of each to walk the line between formal art and the fantastic. Jason calls Ohio home where he keeps a studio as well as teaches at the Columbus College of Art and Design.
Inspired by the stories he reads, and the people and times that surround him, Jason’s work blends myth, personal narrative, and symbolic imagery to speak to the larger collective narrative.
