Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) Album and Theatrical Work Abstract, paint and mixed media on paper under plexiglass, 12x24

Jason Gouliard

I am interested in the intersection between abstraction and meaning. My work explores a world in which abstraction can represent relatable and recognizable subject matter, namely books from an average American high school reading list. At the heart of my work lies an earnest attempt at explaining the unexplainable by juxtaposing traditional abstract expressionist painting methods with cartography, proofreader’s marks, and amateur roadside museum techniques of display, classification, and critique.
