    To be beside yourself. To think of others, besides yourself. To feel outside yourself. We are in interaction with an affective field, the body a surface of intensities, the brain translating these, at times, as emotions or feelings.

    Artworks have the capacity to move us, and artworks contain much that resists interpretation. The ‘emotional turn’ in art might stem from the realization that the experience of the body means something, especially in its connection to the surrounding world – how relations between things, object, beings, and events, assemblages of materials and entities external to ourselves, have potential for sparking new affective relations.

    Jason Cusator ('06) will be holding his first solo exhibition, This Exists. The Canadian artist spent his youth growing up in rural BC and the Yukon and took to art at a young age, finding it a grounding escape in periods of change and uncertainty. Working primarily in acrylic and oil on non-figurative abstract paintings, his work is at times dark with an undertone of vibrancy, all the while remaining playful. For Jason, abstract allows for the expression of what cannot be articulated in other mediums.

    This Exists
    434 Columbia Street, Vancouver BC
    September 30 - October 12 | 11am-7pm daily (6pm on Sundays)
