Jason Wyman is many things. They are an artist that uses all the tools available — photography, video, interviews, social media, sound, design, illustration, mobile media — to create visual works that reveal layers, connections, and perspectives. They are a writer examining truths and myths through fables, poetry, and parallel observations.They are a performer crafting multi-media experiences that dance between light and dark, despair and hope, reality and possibility. They are a curator filling white walls and empty spaces with the voices and visions of community, emerging, and established artists. They are an educator cultivating environments of peer exchange rooted in creative inquiry and multi-sensory pedagogies. They are a catholic (notice it is not capitalized) mystic conjuring ephemeral landscapes of astral and temporal origins. They are queerly complex.
Their work has graced walls, stages, screens, classrooms, street corners, and museums including Asian Art Museum, Contemporary Jewish Museum, Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, DeYoung Museum, SOMArts Cultural Center, Black and White Projects, 16th Street BART Station, San Francisco Public Library, The Roxie, French-America International School, Stanford University, and Santa Clara University.
The space ultimately is unimportant. What matters most is that the work exists in memories and dreams.
