Bio

Jason S. Wright, also known as Liver Ideas, lives and works in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Wright’s work is an exploration of the parallels found within the creative practice and spiritual practice. Deeply rooted in the underground traditions of self-publishing and bootleg ideology where it is more fruitful to create your own world rather than assimilating to someone else’s.

The heavily layered paintings are accompanied by fragmented sentences, from pre-existing texts or hand-written in zine-aesthetic fonts, forming new subversive statements like “pose,” “you are not it,” “I see God in Everything” or “I’ve suffered my whole life for you, an’ waddaya do? Ya run away.” Operating like a bootlegger of visual culture,Wright lifts the hijacked images and words out of their original context and, as a strategic détournement, into his own world.A strange, fabulating, sometimes horrifying, yet always surprising, poetic visual vocabulary.
