 Jason Hackenwerth는 조각, 설치, 그리고 그림 분야에서 다방면의 작업을 이어가고 있으며, 그의 작품들은 관계에서의 초월성과 연결성을 탐구한다. 주로 자연에서 작품의 모티프를 얻어, 제이슨의 작품은 사랑, 기쁨, 화해의 가능성을 조명하며 한편으로는 도전과 현실의 고통을 통해 감상자들이 인생의 여정을 경험하도록 유도한다. Jason Hackenwerth는 작가의 역할이야말로, 감상자들이 인생이라는 길을 등반할 때에 작가가 길가에 돌을 쌓아두어 등반을 잘 마치도록 하는 것이라고 이야기한다. 그리고 자신이 먼저 걸어올라온 길을 사람들이 같이 걷는 것을 보는 과정에 가치가 있다고 덧붙인다. 작가는 자신의 작업에 대해 ‘끊임없이 길가에 돌을 놓는 과정’이라고 비유하며, 이를 통해 연대의 걸음을 내딛는 것을 삶의 이유로 제시한다.

 Jason Hackenwerth is a multidisciplinary artist working in the fields of sculpture, installation, and painting. His works explore transcendence and connectedness to one another. Taking cues from the natural world, Jason’s work endeavors to bring viewers on a journey through the challenges and sometimes bitterness of life while keeping sight of the potential for love, joy, and forgiveness. As an artist, I see my function as similar to a hiker on a remote trail who piles stones along the way to help others remain on the path. And as such, when I encounter dazzling works by other artists I feel a connectedness to the experience. A feeling of affirmation that others have taken this path and that it is a worth-while endeavor. My work is a continual practice of trying to arrange the stones so surprisingly that they become arresting beacons of assurance that we are not lost, we are not alone. we are life. We are consciousness. We are.
