Jay Sage, Keep Calm & Introspect, 2018, graphite, gunpowder and gold leaf, 24 x 24 inches

Jay Sage aspires to earn the title of artist, and he works hard to convey a broad spectrum of feelings. Feelings like loneliness, vanity, and even contentment. He paves a highway into the emotional world (visually) by creating empathy in the viewer. The use of vivid contrast, and his almost graphic style, creates a visual biography around the subject, showing who they are, and where they’ve been. His ever-changing body of work utilizes a vast array of mediums and textures (such as gunpowder, spray paint, gold leaf etc…), while putting classic subjects in a contemporary setting.
