TPP presents: "Jason Karolak: Drawings"

This month TPP is proud to present the works of Jason Karolak in his solo exhibition titled: "Jason Karolak: Drawings" The exhibition consists of 15 ink on paper drawings of a variety of sizes. In what will be Karolak's first show in Puerto Rico. The works will range between $250-$400 keeping TPP mission of offering great works by great artists at affordable prices.

Karolak obtained his BFA from Pratt Institute and his MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). He currently has an solo exhibition at McKenzie Fine Art in New York. He is currently a Lecturer at Drew University and was a Professor (painting) at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 2008-2009. For more information on his works please visit

His studio practice is grounded in the process of drawing. He works between the nodes of thumbnail sketches, ink drawings on paper, and oil paintings on canvas. The works on paper are loose and open-ended, often reworking similar forms and structures. He works fluidly from piece to piece, and later edits down to the ones that are successful. Working with a geometric vocabulary, looking to find balance between the architectural and the organic. There is usually a single, central form: The process is more about constructing than it is composing. For him, drawing is a place of cultivation where character and content have the potential to be revealed, even if only implicitly.

The show will be traveling to the University of Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras), Universidad del Sagrado Corazon and Escuela de Artes Plasticas. Make sure to follow us on Twitter
