Online Feature: Jason L. Starin

Jason Starin


Utilizing ceramics, discarded objects, and construction materials to make works, my art practice  attempts to find connections between craft, escapism, and emotional awareness. It is an  investigation of fantasy and formal aesthetics with consideration to how those perspectives and  acts may relate to privilege and trauma. Through the development of research, drawings, and  sculptures, my works reference geomythology, as well as sci-fi and fantasy settings, spaces,  figures, and imagery. 

Jason Lee Starin has shown in numerous group exhibitions throughout the USA,  notably at Katherine E. Nash Gallery, MN., Law Warschaw Gallery, MN., Woodmere Art  Museum, PA., Gravity Gallery, MA., American Museum of Ceramic Art, CA., The Center  for Craft, Creativity and Design, NC., GCA Gallery, NYC., Arizona State University Art  Museum, Ceramics Research Center, AZ., The Clay Studio, PA., and San Angelo  Museum of Fine Arts, TX. In 2017, Starin received an Independence Foundation  Fellowship Grant to research his interest in Geomythology during a two-month stay at  the NES Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland. Starin received his MFA in Applied  Craft and Design from Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and  Craft in 2011, and his BFA in Ceramics from Grand Valley State University in 1999. In  1998, he studied abroad at Kingston University, in the United Kingdom. Currently, Starin  lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
