Jasper Marsalis

Jasper Marsalis’ paintings, sculptures, music and texts examine the role of the artist as a performer. The similarities between the canvas and the stage are explored in compositions that suggest both flatness and depth. Los Angeles-based Marsalis uses history, representation and identities—including Blackness—to create a spectacular and fractured illusion, while simultaneously questioning its effect.
