|Jason Bly teaches various drawing courses at SIUE. He received his MFA in painting from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and his MA and BA degrees in painting and printmaking at Eastern Illinois University.
In his current work, Jason creates oil paintings that explore the connections between technology, simulation, and the everyday experience. Traditional paintings methods are used to mimic a graphic design sensibility combined with paintings of objects from life. This laborious method of creating art acts as a way of yielding to the overwhelming influx of visual stimuli encountered everyday.
