Statement

My work is built upon the universal foundation of the inevitable occurrence of loss and how that impacts us as individuals and a species.

My work serves as a lens through which the viewer's attention is refocused on the losses we all face - be that in dealing with the loss of our cultural identities, our gender identities, the very literal loss of information (digital or otherwise) or through the ultimate loss experienced via death.

 


 

In 1974 Jason Covert was born on the peninsula known as Cape Cod between a harbor and a marsh.

Schooled in Connecticut at the liberal arts edifice of Connecticut College he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Covert worked for a time with the controversial Vermont based artist Barre Pinske before deploying himself unto the world at large. Having lived in Boston, San Francisco, Tasmania and Portugal Jason landed in New York City in 2000.

Striving to become a recognized artist Covert found himself sleeping in doorways, his car and on the couches of friends and acquaintances for months on end. And so, it was not without considerable struggle that these past years have come and gone allowing Covert to enjoy a sizable clientele of collectors that literally span the globe. His fine artwork is found in several private collections.

The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
