Artist Details

Jason Trucco

Jason Trucco brings "Framed" by re-purposing and re-creating classic moments of cinema or constructing film-like scenarios. They are characterized by Trucco's ongoing endeavor to describe the shadowy world of video through the lens of his classically stark, noir aesthetic. Like many of the classic film directors he references, from Stroheim to Hitchcock to Kubrick, Trucco pares his images down with a severe discipline that allows their inchoate and dangerous underpinnings to surface in new and alarming ways.

Jason Trucco is an artist and director whose highly experimental work explores many of the images, ideas and experiences we collectively share as consumers of mass media. For Trucco, these images are a point of departure from which to explore the deeper resonances, distortions and fragmentation that occur as they are broadcast and reiterated throughout our culture. He explores variations on these themes in a singularly disarming, lucid and witty style, complimented by the use of inventive new technology.
