If you haven't heard of artist Jason Limon, you are missing out on one of San Antonio's (and America's) very best fine artists of this modern age. His inventive, imaginative and transcendental themes make him a fitting addition to the highlighted works on my radar.
At first glance each piece looks like a pop-up book page come to life. Old crumpled and dog-eared corners abound, bent tin and wind-up keys are essential components of the tiny mechanisms created by Jason's unique and curious mind. He carries the viewer on a wild journey through the alphabet via intelligently placed word play and subliminal or out-right symbolic mysticism.
Each of his works stand alone as a realized bit of real magic, but his entire body of work throughout the years is no less than a titan of a marvel to behold. Every stroke of his brush is a pure gift to the viewer. Like something of a dream made manifest, Jason walks us through the inner workings of his brain while inviting us to turn the looking glass inward toward ourselves. And what a splendid reflection he creates!
