Barbara West at the Brewe ry is pleased to present “Whispers and Sparks” a collection of assem bled sculptures by Jason Hadley.

\n

Jason Hadley wants to make you unc ertain\, but in the most comforting way possible\, of course.

\n

Hadle y’s assemblage pieces are warm\, colloquial vignettes of slightly familiar\ , totally awkward tall tales. Assembled with elements of personal ephemera\ , found materials\, wax castings\, encaustics\, gifts\, memories\, and a wr y sense of humor\, Hadley deftly inspires curiosity without ever giving any thing away. Layers of symbols and materials draw your eye into the pieces\, loop through your rational mind\, and spit you back out the other side\, l eaving you scratching your head\, and wondering if you get it or if you’ve just been had.

\n

And such is the way with Jason Hadley who\, above al l else\, wants to offer you a new experience. From a performance and atmosp here-heavy rock band\, to confounding immersive environments\, to his recen t push-button activated sculptures which screech feedback into the faces of audiences daring enough to touch\, Hadley goes out of his way to make cert ain he isn’t the only one gleefully enduring his haunting art.

\n

Wher eas\, in the past\, Hadley has set imperceivable traps for his audience fro m which the only exits are unfairly close to something unspeakable\, “Wh ispers and Sparks” is a decidedly more subtle installation from which y ou require no exit. It is quiet and glows with the flicker of incandescent bulbs. It is welcoming and entices you to sit by its hearth and get lost in its environments. It just wants to spend time with you. Or perhaps it want s to tickle your toes with a little rusty nail.

\n

…Step right in and experience the wonders of Jason Hadley\, a full service artist…
