Jason Varone combines video and painting with appropriated news footage and electronic data, removing any distinctions or boundaries between them. His “videopaintings” underline the impermanence and constant bombardment of transmitted information to a society that is fixated on alternately obsessing over or ignoring electronic messages.
A graduate of New York University, Varone lives and works in both San Francisco, California and Brooklyn, New York. His artwork has been exhibited in many venues including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, The Boston Center for the Arts, The British Film Institute, The International Center of Photography and Art in General in New York City.
