Jay C. Lohmann is a many faceted artist based in Milan.
“ As part of a continued effort to resolve the inconsistencies of my intimate world, I find that my art seeks to answer the questions I am constantly asking myself. Why am I here, and what is my purpose? Where does my passion lie and what has meaning? Most important, what role does art and creativity play in unearthing substantive answers to these inquiries? The only moment when these questions are silenced is when I am creating something — I am at peace when I am lost in the act of creativity.
We live in a superficial, chaotic world that’s increasingly disconnected and where gratification is instantaneous yet fleeting. Nothing real lasts longer than a camera’s flash. My only assurance of something concrete comes from my contact with the creative process and the interpersonal relationships that evolve from this.
Though I know my art will not persist in time, perhaps it may send out an echo of my being that is eternal”.
