In Jamie Chase’s work, the full sweep is as important as any singular painting. Just as people adapt to new situations and relationships, so the artist’s paintings chronicle a fascinating metamorphosis from one canvas to the next.
It’s Chase’s effort to depict the philosophy of evolutionary consciousness, an ethos that has guided him in his career and life.
Chase was born in San Francisco, California in 1954. His grandmother, who he calls his “guardian angel”, first recognized his talent when he was five years old and signed him up for the first of many art classes.
