Goblin King torchlight
In honor of this year’s theme “All Hail the Goblin King”, Spocon would like to shine a little light upon local artists and writers who inspire and fascinate. New people will be highlighted regularly, so please return and don’t forget to pre-register for 2019.
Inspired by her insatiable wanderlust, her three cats, and an endless fascination of the beings and world around her, Jasán uses a unique combination of watercolor with ink linework. Each piece evokes a connection to the spirit of the animals that she captures - revealing them as individuals instead of simply beasts. Playing with a balance of jewel tones, rich golds, the natural and ephemeral, Jasán’s work alludes to religious iconography that places the beings in her pieces in sacred dreamscapes.
Jasán’s work exposes the way we view the other beings that live on our planet and around us. They too are beings - not simply commodities
Wyoming native Guy Worthey traded spurs and lassos for telescopes and computers when he decided to pursue astrophysics. Whenever he temporarily escapes the gravitational pull of stars and galaxies, he writes fiction, now in the slightly less rectangular state of Washington. He plays jazz bass and happily stretches genre boundaries to find common musical ground with his classical violinist wife Diane. A beacon of inclusivity in a fractured world, he likes both cats and dogs. Creamed eggs on toast is the earthy name of his favorite food, but once in a while he samples the celestial delights of chocolate.
