Mountain Piece / Jason Sheppard
Like Sands Through the Hourglass So Are the Days of Our Lives / Scott Raby

Artists Jason Sheppard and Scott Raby use materials and imagery which are egalitarian, favoring the shapes, textures, and forms found in a pedestrian landscape. Despite this, both artists have drastically different approaches to this working style; one clean, one dirty, one shiny, one rusted, one baroque, one understated.

While their work differs in outcome, it arises from a singular point of a disciplined energy which reshapes their everyday experiences into alarmingly opaque art. Despite using a lexicon of the daily, they transform signs and signifiers until they weave in and out of recognition, changing the familiar into the obscure.

In One Point Twenty-One Jiggawats, both artists will actively create and alter VERTIGO Art Space as a site to not only to reexamine the phenomena of the culturally banal but the unknowns and uncertainties in its collapse.
