Jason Paradis is from Canada and now lives and works in the New York area. In his work, there is a sense of contemplation or of reverie that speculates on a fundamental mystery–this being the result of a lot of camping under an expansive sky in the northern Canadian wilderness. There, questions emerged regarding the existence of something much larger than the immediate world. He is very interested in a moment where the past, present, and future collide. His work has been displayed is several exhibitions in and around New York City as well as across the United States and Canada. Among these are New York area galleries such as White Columns, Jessica Murray Projects, Cynthia Broan Gallery, Marcus Ritter, OMNI Gallery, and Gallery @ 82. Other venues include the Islip Art Museum and the art gallery at Virginia Tech. He received a BFA from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, an MFA from Stony Brook University, and attended the selective Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program hosted by the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
