Jared Weiss is an artist currently living and working in New Mexico. His work
explores themes of memory and the complex relationship between one’s internal
world and environment. Weiss’s applications of exaggerated color in deliberately
gestural, layered brush strokes mimic the imperfections of sensory recall as
memories mingle with layered fragments of the human psyche. Emerging from
these layers are dream-like depictions of figures engaged in their own abstracted
worlds, blurring with their surroundings in scenes somehow eerily familiar. He
received his BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design and his MFA from the
San Francisco Art Institute.
