In this clip a brief lecture by Jason Salavon and some works of the artist are shown:

In some works Salavon will overlay many photographic images on top of each other. Another technique, which reminds me of Andy Warhol is to use still images from a film and work from those, but place them side by side.

Another technique is to make artistic designs using statistical data.

Jason Salavon has also done installation work with several large commissioned works that are site specific.

Price range information:  Photographs  range from $4,000 to $12,000.

I love the photographs dealing with landscapes. With his digital expertise added, I can’t help but think the great Cubist artists would have loved to see a photographic that looked like one of their paintings.
