Victory (Ode to McQueen) oils and enamel on canvas by Jason Phelps

Jason Phelps presents “Sojourn”; a collection of work pairing glances of the human form with the designs of nature.  His work ranges from figurative to abstract while employing both traditional and found media.  He is a transplant from Southern Oregon and enjoys the creative process of making and teaching art.   His experience of growing up around the mountains and rivers of Southern Oregon helped to develop his instinct to wander, collect, and create. He aims to layer his work with both material and meaning; in addition, Jason hopes that his work will encourage the viewer to contemplate our relationship with the intelligence of the Earth, animals, and stars.  As he states in his statement for Sojourn:

We are not outside nature. We are part of the great events which occur all around us;  whether beneath our feet or in our night sky.
