If you’re in New York between now and April 6, 2013, I encourage you to drop by the Brigham Young University Museum of Art, where currently on exhibit is We Could Be Heroes: The Mythology of Monsters and Heroes in Contemporary Art, which includes work by Jason Bard Yarmosky, featured this past month in Combustus magazine (see: “Jason Bard Yarmosky’s Hyper Realistic Oil Paintings Challenge Notions of Aging Gracefully“).
In the meantime, please enjoy this video of the artist as he talks about his work and the featured piece, “Reclining Dining,” which this January was included in Nocturnes: Romancing the Night at the Grand Gallery at The National Arts Club, in New York City:
Listen to Jason Yarmosky interview his eighty-four year old grandparents, Len and Elaine Bard, the models for his Elder Kinder series.
Note: Also interviewed on video at this event was fellow Brooklyn contemporary oil painter, Martin Wootfooth.
To see that interview, please see our next Combustus blog post: https://combustus.com/artist-update-martin-wittfooth/
