The art of Jason Marsh illustrates unexpected turns on familiar situations by pushing the envelope of reality without quite crossing over into fantasy. Such situations typically involve memory-stirring entertainment…an amusement park, a sporting event, a celebration, a game of chance. The subject is then joined by another concept and merges by way of a less obvious, though perhaps more important, idea that pulls them together. The combination makes for an image that really draws you in because the fusion makes sense—in an oddly satisfying way. So, even though, momentarily, it seems impossible, you’re also thinking, “Hey, I can see how that really could happen!”
