This event has ended.

Creating in a miniature scale, Jason D’Aquino presents diminutive spaces that explode with rich detail and cryptic imagery. Upon close inspection – which is mandatory when viewing these intricate surfaces – a presentation of seemingly innocent characters and paraphernalia unfolds into a world of perversity and fetishism.

The mystery of his subjects is further enhanced by the fact that they are rendered on found and naturally aged materials. D’Aquino goes through great lengths scouring flea markets, abandoned homes and dust bins to find antique surfaces that are recontextualized into his art. The beauty in the initial discovery of these forgotten objects is then carried through to the high attention to detail and craftsmanship.

A skilled draftsman, Jason D'Aquino has exhibited extensively throughout the United States. His drawings have been featured in the New York Times, Juxtapoz, I.T.A., The Stranger, and Gulliver
magazine A hardbound volume of his is work is forthcoming by Ignition Publishing.
