Forever is Nothing: Jason Holley at SR2
posted:
Holley with Stetson.
Illustrator Jason Holley was in town for the opening of his exhibition "Forever is Nothing" at the SR2 Gallery on University Ave. last night. SR2 is Sacred Rose Tattoo [you can see the shop in the back of the photos]. 


Holley, whose work is considered to be among the most stylistically unique in illustration today told me that he'd made all the work for the exhibition in "about three months." and that it was created specifically for SR2.  Interesting feature is the sculptural, 3D effect created by cutting the paintings out and mounting them on light, wooden armatures. Holley considered the work to co-exist as a series of pairs with larger, more sculptural pieces positioned next to more traditionally framed work.  It is a very impressive gesture and a real boundry blurring proposition for an illustrator to undertake.  Holley lives in Los Angeles and teaches at ACCD.  He is also a musician.

There was a pretty good hipster turnout, but with lots of kids too.
They were actually working on customers in the Tattoo shop during the party.
