About Royal Jarmon
Royal Jarmon is a painter and sculptor who jumps between mediums to create his vivid works that capture the imagination and then bring it back to reality. The commercial and stark references his works have are a refreshing and grounding way of looking at objecthood – and then back at the painting again. Being an artist from the Midwest who traveled to New York City, he uses familiar imagery within dizzying urban landscapes to show us a tension between ourselves and our commercial environment at large. He pushes through moments of darkness with absurdity and wit that leave you within a mixed emotional conundrum. You don’t always know if it is alright to think something depicted is beautiful or funny – or beautifully funny. Jarmon is not afraid of pushing the tensions between the absurd and the way we perceive ourselves within this urban-centric lifetime. Each piece is flooded with color and optimism with a poetic undertow of cynicism and darkness.
