Do you like this story?
Jason Myers premiered his show "Disintegration" on First Friday for August at his own gallery, ArtBox. My first impression before attending and seeing web images was that Francis Bacon had to be a major influence and that his figures were a little off. But when I got to the show I was reminded just how important it is to see art in person. The complex texturing was controlled as metallic masked shapes transformed from negative to positive spaces.
Talking to Jason during the opening convinced me that coming back later to spend some time with him would be worthwhile and interesting.
