Currently showing in San Francisco’s FFDG is the incredible looking solo show of brand new work by Jason Jagel, “Crap Shoot.”
“Crap Shoot” embodies a multitude of new work from sketch fragments to full scale paintings by the San Francisco based artist that is based around the entire idea of creating art being a gamble. “My desire is to plumb my studio for evidence of time spent through an expression of studio phenomena. How the show will end up is anyone’s guess… a crap shoot,” Jagel says.
“Musicians like Dudley Perkins, I appreciate because he is someone who says, If I’m not putting myself on the line, what’s the point? He’s looking for these kinds of moments where he can put himself emotionally at risk in the process of making something. It really resonates with me personally because I want to make something that is so important to me that it is a part of myself. If I can do that, then I’ve accomplished something.” -Jason Jägel
STILLA takes a visit to the studio of Jason Jägel – whose work you might recognize from MF DOOM & Madlib album covers – to learn his outlook on storytelling in art and beliefs of putting everything on the line for the sake of creating something.
