Jason DeMarte born 1973 in Louisiana, is an established artist teaching as a tenure track faculty in photography at Eastern Michigan University. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums, both nationally and internationally, currently is represented by Rule Gallery in Denver Colorado, Clamp Art in NYC and Wessel Snyman Creative in Cape Town, South Africa.
I work digitally, combining images of fabricated and artificial flora and fauna with graphic elements and commercially produced products such as processed food, domestic goods and pharmaceutical products. I look at how these seemingly unrelated and absurd groupings and composites begin to address attitudes and understandings of the contemporary experience.
I represent the natural world through completely unnatural elements to speak metaphorically and symbolically of our mental separation from what is “real”, and compare and contrast this with the consumer world we surround ourselves with as a consequence.
