Working across painting, sculpture, music and text, Jasper Marsalis (b. 1995 Los Angeles, CA, US) elaborates a parallel between the space of painting and a performer on stage, both of which entail an experience of being consumed by audiences. Glaring spotlights are depicted throughout his work, which obscure their intended object and act as obstacles to vision. By troubling perception, Marsalis interrogates the ocular centrism of painting and the associated role of spectacle and access.
