Vanilla Sky, 2018


pigmented ink print, edition of 10, 24 x 36 in / 61 x 91.4 cm

Jason DeMarte’s artistic practice has, for several years, examined humanity’s conflicting tendencies to idealize nature while continuously searching to improve upon it. By composing fictional tableaus, the work speaks to our uneasy obsession with beauty and excess and our preoccupation with sugarcoating perfection. Drawing from the romanticism of the Hudson River School and deepening his palette, DeMarte’s latest body of work increases the sense of overt indulgence while darkening the deeper subtext. Caterpillars and moths in this image have been raised by the artist act as stand-ins for the viewer and intermingle with flora evincing the onset of decay to bring a clearer sense of mortality often missing in our consumer-centric world. Each print comes signed and numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity.
