Jason Messinger creates ceramic art that straddles the cool allure of pure abstraction and the hot recognition of representation. His artwork is certain in its aesthetic quality, yet open in its intrinsic meaning. The artist approaches ceramic tile with a painter's concerns and a sculptor's experience. His multi-tile works are designed to be modular, allowing any configuration and sequence of the tiles. Mounting systems allows the owner to change the tiles, and thus reset the 'narratives'. Using a variety of techniques, the artist makes letters dance in and out of comprehension, re-imagines pragmatically designed utility poles into startling signifiers of organic beauty, turns clock-work gears into constructions of complexity, carves static clay into moving waves and ripples, and transforms simple circles into burning suns. In the 'Palimpsests' series, objects from the real world leave bas-relief impressions on the clay, scripting a new language of forms and shapes. His sculptures have a strong identity, while remaining abstract in inspiration, moving through forms as one walks around them, creating a visual dance of mass and shape. The artist's paintins and drawings on paper re-imagine the world into patterns and diagrams of movement and color, light and gesture.

A full-time artist since 1995, his artwork resides in private, corporate, and public collections throughout North Amercia, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The artist's studio at the Cornelia Arts Building in Chicago is open to the public and the trade by appointment.
