Artist Jason DeMarte is fascinated by culture. He’s especially intrigued by consumer culture and the ways in which it’s products represent the natural world. He writes “This unnatural experience of the so-called “natural” world is reflected in the way we, as modern consumers, ingest products. What becomes clear is that the closer we come to mimicking the natural world, the further away we separate ourselves from it.”
DeMarte’s artwork is the result of careful compositing. He takes imaginary depictions of nature and combines them with commercial products or elements. The result is both powerful and pleasing. The viewer is invited to ponder the cultural themes that DeMarte raises while at the same time being able to simply enjoy a beautiful object of fine art.
