Jason Mowry, “Burgeon Fantastic”
January 21st – February 19th, 2023
Haven Gallery is pleased to present “Burgeon Fantastic”, a collection of new paintings by Ohio based Jason Mowry. “Burgeon Fantastic” is Mowry’s third solo show at the gallery and continues the artists exploration of human beings transcendence with nature through historic and contemporary narratives. Highly inspired by mythology, Mowry paints classical divinities and timeless chronicles in his own stylistic hand, reinterpreting these ageless tales into contemporaneous visuals. Warm, earthen palettes embrace his Mannerist female figures, impressive animals and exotic flora, as a sense of harmony and balance are evoked. Lush with detail, his paintings teem with life and grace. Through his medium, Mowry creates serene and expressive scenes uniting all living beings and returning humans to nature’s cyclical and majestic realm. 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.
