San Francisco-based artist Jason Engelund merges aspects of painting and photography in ways that expand the definition of both mediums. His compositions are grounded in the realm of landscape, where foreground and background elements lead the eye inwards towards a rational picture space. Engelund upends that sensible grasp of visual reality, which we have come to expect from a landscape photograph, dissolving into an abstracted dreamscape in which the mind is tantalized by psychedelic color fields, burned out light blots, flashes of text, and visceral encounters with paint. Positioned somewhere between memory and metaphor, the work invites viewers to question pre-supposed limitations of the photographic image. Engelund earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction at the California College of Arts and Crafts and his Master of Fine Arts from the University of California, Davis. In addition to numerous private collections, work by Engelund is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Photographic Arts of San Diego.

Jason Engelund is a San Francisco Bay Area based visual artist. His artwork is held in the permanent collection of the Museum of Photographic Arts and many of his photographs and paintings are in private collections and have been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions. Engelund received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction at the California College of Arts and Crafts and received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of California, Davis. In 2012 Engelund was awarded the Individual Artist grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation. In 2016 he was nominated and selected as one of eleven photographic artists for the Museum of Photographic Arts triennial exhibition “Boundless: A California Invitational”.

In addition to visual art Engelund devotes time to writing and socially engaged arts endeavors. Engelund’s poetry has been reviewed as “sensory and subconscious language”, and his slow poetry, encourages deeper rumination promoting nuanced, authentic experience in readers. His handmade poetry and photo arts books have sold out through City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco and Skylight books LA.

Engelund also works to develop strategic, sustainable arts programs that engage artists, organizations and communities to address social and humanitarian needs. He is a founding member of the California College of the Arts Center for Art and Public Life where he worked for eleven years developing programs for artists to collaborate with communities locally, and across the globe to address social and humanitarian issues. In 2017 Engelund received a grant from Crayola for his program “Contemporary Voices in Arts Education” helping schools meet best practices in the arts education for all students.
