Jake Dorr keeps art compelling by taking normal artifacts of life and drawing significance out of them through abstraction, taking their fundamental elements and giving them a playful slant. He finds satisfaction in reckoning with the grace or grandeur that can be found in and between the brokenness of the visual world. New history; new markings; bringing the immaterial to account for its existence... this is where he finds his fulfillment.

Through world travel and aesthetic scholarship Jake has gained a fresh appreciation for different ways of seeing and different approaches to visual communication. Through these habits of expression, Jake hopes to inspire new generations of poetic voices to rise up.
