Jason A. Maas creates drawings that find the core expression in human body language by carefully removing contextual information and leaving a structure that both illuminates and challenges the content of an image. Negative spaces provide focus, silence, and an openness to allow the viewer to finish the drawing. The new body of work confronts the current understanding of how we view journalistic images of social unrest that proliferate the media, from professional photographs to low resolution cell phone photos.
