April — Jake Dorr
Jake lives and works in Corvallis, Oregon. His interests include visual arts such as photography, silk-screening and painting, as well as being involved in teaching, research and charitable work in many different parts of the world. To learn more please visit his website at www.jakedorr.com.
To paint is to display the way you see the world. As an artist I try to bring forward new ideas and to project a philosophy of life by playing within the context of everyday objects.
Whether through visual humor, hidden layers or reconsidering historical narratives, I enjoy weaving a mosaic of structures into each piece. This exhibition is a journey into that conversation…
I want to use all of the tools at my disposal to investigate the majesty and wonder of our existence and to continually be amazed at our bizarre, inexplicably beautiful world.
I hope you can appreciate the themes that run throughout this collection; the Why does that belong there? and the What Ifs and the questions that poke at your brain as you walk away…
And I hope these questions cause you to laugh, to ponder, to think critically and to live honestly.
