Q&A with Jason DeMarte

Why do you do what you do?

Honestly I’m not sure how to answer this, my art is I and I am my art. I always have a hard time explaining this to people outside the art world. It is just something I do.

What have you learned from another artist lately?

Good work needs a “left hook” James Davis

Who or what is your biggest influence in your art making?

Conceptually I would say music and visually science and scientific methods of display.

What are you trying to do to people with your art?

Challenge the way they understand the natural world and the way we interact with our growing immediate commercial environment.

What is one of your favorite photo processes or techniques and why?

Definitely digital workflow, this has been an amazing transformation. I love that I can make an image and basically do what ever I want to it creatively.
