Even in Darkness There is Light

“The sculptural practice of Jason Peters combines the politics of the readymade with an intuitive process that takes the inherent character of the materials he employs to guide his construction strategies. Using ingenuity and superior craftsmanship, Peters succeeds in achieving his stated goal of ‘creating moments in time that cause people to contemplate or reconsider their values or ideas of time, space and objects.’” Peters has stated, “Philosophically, all objects are ‘becoming’ in a continuous process of birth and death, because nothing is permanent.”

-- Paul Brewer, independent curator and writer, from Jason Peters: The Space In-Between
