My intent is that morbidity, comic relief, satire and bad taste will be apparent to the viewer and that the audience will internalize that I was, in the act of painting, doing my own shadow work. The making of Penumbra was the reduction of the shadow self to only a partial eclipse, an act of shedding light on the darkest part of the my shadow.

Artist Statement:

Jeremy Owen is a cartoonist whose work uses dark humor and the themes and symbols of the shadow self to enlighten and entertain. He uses humor, derision and existential philosophy to self-deprecate and critique culture through his three cartoons Hungry Hungry Hippocrates, Sidewalk Pirates and The Brothers Cerebellov. These each live respectively in their own cartoon universe and are made using single panel gag cartoons, animation and surreal painting. Jeremy has received the Martin Wong Scholarship in Painting from Humboldt State University and the Presidential Scholarship from Maine College of Art.
