The inspirational vision was burned into Jamison's mind when he was involved in a live situation on a summer evening at 4am while driving on the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn. The high-speed car in front of him started swerving and flipping over and over again. Everything was in slow motion, every flip, every frame and every smash of the car. Fascinated with art, design, science and chaos he envisioned the concept of the trajectory of a car driving at top speed and capturing the still but tragic beauty of it flipping through color, sound, time and space. The passengers were thrown violently from the car, he rushed to aid the victims; luckily they survived and had minimal injuries. This accident was the inspiration for the Bouncing Cars series. 

Destruction breeds creation, which is the Bouncing Cars series. We are currently starting the process of painting and screen-printing the series as well as seven sculptures of a bouncing car for the final piece and gallery show. Our goal is to have forty-nine 4’x4’ one of a kind paintings for our exhibition, all varying in color, bringing quality and individuality to each piece of art.  We will make the art available to everyone in all price points beyond just canvas. For our backers we will have limited edition signed and numbered prints, t-shirts, Ipod/Ipad and laptop cases and the paintings themselves available in the rewards. I want to make art that is for everyone to use, love and appreciate. The Ipod/Ipad and laptop cases will be made by our friends at Caseable.com

WHY WE NEED SUPPORT!

We need help with supplies and materials for the paintings and sculptures, renting the actual space needed for the exhibition, and of course paying the dedicated art assistants working hard everyday in order to produce the show. We need help from all art lovers everywhere to be able to make this exhibition possible!  Our main goal is to create beautiful pieces of collectable art, and along with that amazing products and an inspiring gallery exhibition. It won't be possible without love and support from people that want to support the arts and see a hard working artist achieve an amazing exhibition. 

Lastly, I have to add that the financial goal we have set is the absolute minimum we need to get this show up and running. So if your budget allows PLEASE feel free to donate even after the goal has been met. I cant wait for you all to see this work and this show become a reality.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Of course, a pretty big challenge is getting all the paintings and sculptures done by a certain date and having the funds to do so. Once we've started the projects we will have a better gauge to just how long everything will take to create. We promise to post a set date for the exhibition as soon as possible!
We have the experience, skill, help and connections to make all the products promised and to make an amazing opening exhibition for the Bouncing Cars series. We are working closely with Caseable, a case company to create the amazing ipod, ipad, and laptop cases! Backers will be notified if we run into any trouble, all though I am confident that our team will create and produce everything promised in a timely manner.
