This piece is from my Heaven and Earth series. These paintings are about sacred geometry. Sacred elements. Other realms. Otherworldly beings. Connection and collaboration. The antiquity of ancestry and the trees of love and life.

Getting to Know Jason

Jason Astorquia recognizes that money is important to the way we think, act, and relate to one another. His “Impressions” series is made up of abstract paintings that are created using the impressions of pennies. Like the mark of consumption on society, Jason repetitively brands his canvases with the mark of physical money. There is a Pop Art element to the work in its bold primary colors, geometric sense of design, and conceptual meaning. His work is as close as you may get to hanging actual money on your wall, a concept that Andy Warhol introduced and played with in his own work. It is evident that there is a lot of planning and precision that goes into each piece. The compositions are like binary code, repeating forms in organized rows to create one large cluster of information. The work is very different up close and from far away. Viewed up close, you can see the layers of texture left by each impression. Each penny has left behind a variable amount of information and color, creating a surface full of uniform irregularities.
