BY JASON BROCKERT
We invite you to admire the majesty of artist Jason Brockert’s AMERICAN ICONS series, a formidable collection of paintings featuring some of pop culture’s most significant consumer products, like:
- Star Wars action figures
- Atari 2600
- Commodore 64
- Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
As an artist, Brockert’s work stands unique in his ability to capture the still-life essence of these amazing creations, rendering images so realistic it’s hard to believe they’re NOT ACTUALLY PHOTOGRAPHS. But upon closer inspection, it’s easy to admire the awesome beauty of his textures and brushwork that prove that these are the creations of very able craftsman… and frankly, a mad genius concerned with incredibly meticulous detail.
30 full-color paintings and 10 drawings will debut at the show, as well as “limited edition” prints. Everything in the show is BEYOND affordable and are perfect pickings for holiday presents… or selfish keepsakes.
