Graduating Cum Laude in 1995, Hugger settled in Phoenix. Jason’s paintings and silverpoint drawings reflect his love of still life and landscape which he combines to create imagery he calls “desert surrealism.” Jason is a Veteran of the Iraq war and lives with his wife in Phoenix.
Painting for me is an exploration. When I paint a still-life, I’m not just describing the objects in front of me, but I’m also exploring the scene as if I were going there in person. By using extremes in scale and perspective, I create drama in my paintings, bringing the viewer into the picture plane.
