JAMES PATRICK OSTLER
James Patrick Ostler lives in Chicago, IL with his wife and son. He received his BA from the University of Missouri in 2009.
His work is mood dominant. He uses gestural abstraction to create mosaics of vitality and chaos.
Through marks that push and pull against each other, he contrasts speed with consideration, and fluidity with gross physicality.
Much of his work explores an inscrutable link between beauty and sadness.
His aim is to produce art that can look back at the world and know its secret.
