About Jamison Eckert
Jamison Eckert’s process is more akin to controlling chaos, nothing ever planned out in full. When he found art school unrewarding, he pursued tattooing, which in turn affected his painting. While the tattoo craft demands perfection, no margin for error with something permanently etched on another’s skin, painting was a way to relieve his exhaustion and abstractly express himself with not pressures or constraints. He has since stepped away from tattooing to pour all his focus into exploring his personal artistic journey, creating freely and without hesitation. His literal and representational pieces focus on form and light, challenging himself to be accurate in his depictions without losing his own voice. His abstract works, meanwhile, are imbued with personal meaning and intent that viewers can parse out themselves. He is highly interested in the viewer, feeling their reactions, thoughts, and feelings cannot be understated in the relationship between artist and spectator.

In order to create freely and without hesitation, my abstract work is never fully thought out or planned. This fluid, almost autonomic process results in a controlled chaos. My more literal or representational pieces are focused on form and light. I challenge myself to accurately depict the person or object without losing my voice. While most of my work, abstract or otherwise, has personal meanings and/or intentions, I am much more interested in the viewers’ reactions, thoughts, and feelings.
