Jason Twiggy Lott is a native Mississippi artist that has been painting and crafting his entire life. Jason studied art throughout his childhood and teenage years, but is predominantly self-taught. His work references both the physical and the spiritual, decay and renewal, the external and internal worlds. He has exhibited work across the Southeastern United States, as well as New York, Washington D.C. His work is held in private collections in the United States and Europe.
“The creation process is a sort of spiritual exploration for me. I try to turn off myself, my brain, and my ego when I create. I try to create from a place of pure spirit. The less I think, the better I usually work. When painting abstractly, dirty brush washing water is just as important as new paint. Every artist working with paints has the jar of water or turpentine that brushes go in and out of while painting. I like the idea of the ‘trash’ that would normally be washed down the drain being on the same level as the untainted paint straight from the tube. It’s sort of a metaphor for how I see the world. The ugly parts of life can always be recycled and reused to help build new ideas and experiences.”
