SURGE: Jason Ramcharan

  • One Sky 125 Durham Street Sudbury, ON, P3E 3M9 Canada (map)

Jason Ramcharan was born and raised in Toronto, then enjoyed being an academia brat whose family moved around Canada and the US as his father accepted positions at different universities. Jason studied at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, and later George Brown College in Toronto.

He has always had a desire to understand the way things work, but his specific interest in the way the universe works was first inspired by Carl Sagan's Cosmos, then by Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time. It was through Hawking that Jason was introduced to the work of other seminal physicists like Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrodinger, Max Planck, Werner Heisenberg, Paul Dirac, and David Bohm, among others. Jason currently resides in Sudbury, Ontario, and does freelance web and graphic design in addition to his artistic practice.

Artist Statement:

"The exploration of ideas surrounding physics, cosmology, consciousness, and perception is the primary motivation behind my creative impulse. I do not create art in series. If a series of works is a novel, my pieces represent an anthology of short stories.”
