Royal Jarmon

My recent work consists of objects and paintings that are the result of stretching visual empathy, but maintaining the semblance of beauty. This involves, finding multiple mediums, techniques, and images while creating boundaries to function within. These self induced parameters force attention to the qualities of said parts and their relationship among each other.


I start with the examination of certain aesthetics that I am intuitively drawn to, usually aspects of what we see all around us in everyday life. Our surroundings have a great deal of influence on us and so I wish to use what is relatable to the viewer.


This model of making, gives me a variety of possibilities to change the equation, while maintaining my ability to continue to visually communicate in new ways. One extension of a boundary or a new medium added, creates a whole new equation to solve, keeping the work evolving. This creates continuous possibilities to have conversation with aesthetic history, emotional fiber, and life experience, but all within the same relatable patterns.
