THOUGHTS (PENSAMIENTOS): EXCERPTS FROM A UNIQUE DIGITAL BOOK BY ARTIST JASSER MEMBRENO
INTRODUCTION BY AMY DANGER
With an incredible facility for drawing and painting, Jasser Membreno creates a moment in world of his own devising. His work is figurative and fantastical; the landscapes, buildings and objects live simultaneously in the past, present, and future world full of decay, mystery and invention. Within that scene, you will often find a figure; vaguely human, certainly emotional. His boundless imagination makes it inevitable that one medium can’t contain his prolific output. His drawings and paintings extend their narrative qualities into the prose and poems he writes.
ThoughtS is an artistic diary, an intimate yet over exposed interpretation of society, culture and technology. It is a surreal, imaginative, stream of conscious narrative amplified by dual versions of each illustration presented side by side, with corresponding Spanish and English interpretations of the poetry and prose. -JM
