When you look at art, sometimes you can be surprised of what is in front of you. What you see, isn’t necessarily what it looks like. Just as with magic, people want to be amazed. These works will have you thinking one thing, but upon further inspection you’ll be pleasantly surprised of what lies beneath the surface.
Just as with card tricks,… it’s all in the wrists. Flick it around and see what happens when you put it to canvas. That is what Jax is making clear with these works. Cards are more than just cards. Slight of hand is more than just pure entertainment, it’s an art from. The same can be said of this collection : it takes years to perfect both.
