Jason H Covert
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Prospect Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is built upon the universal foundation of the inevitable occurrence of loss and how that impacts us as individuals and a species.
My work serves as a lens through which the viewer's attention is refocused on the losses we all face - be that in dealing with the loss of our cultural identities, our gender identities, the very literal loss of information (digital or otherwise) or through the ultimate loss experienced via death.
The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
