See Award-Winning Chicago Artist Paint Live at Exhibition Opening

Watch a live painting performance by artist Jason Brammer on Saturday, May 9, 2009 during the 

opening for his forthcoming solo exhibition, “Into the After”, at Star Lounge. 

CHICAGO, Illinois — April 20, 2009 — “Into The After”, a new exhibition at Star Lounge by Chicago 

painter Jason Brammer, will feature a collection of photo-surrealist, mixed media paintings from his “Time 

Machines” series. According to Brammer, his “Time Machines” depict “visions of the future or of the future 

intervening in the past”. Many of the paintings in this series have hardware and other objects attached 

that he has aged to feel as if they were a century old. In particular, these “machines” are made to look as 

if they were from 1901, which was the peak of the Art Nouveau movement (1890-1910).  This Art 

Nouveau influence is felt in some of the pieces as the sinuous line work of the cables swirls into action, 

escorting the viewer into another dimension of time. Brammer creates these sculptural paintings by 

seamlessly incorporating found objects, antique hardware, tubing, and constructed wood pieces into his 

works on  canvas.   

At the opening reception for the show on Saturday, May 9th from 8 to 11pm, guests can watch Brammer 

in action as he does a live painting performance showcasing his airbrushing techniques and signature 

surrealistic style. To see Jason’s artwork, visit his website at 

This event is free and open to the public. A portion of the proceeds from this show will be donated to 

“Chicago Coalition for the Homeless”, a local non-profit organization that works with people hurt by 

homelessness. The exhibition will be up for viewing through Tuesday, June 30th.
