Jason Lustig “Creature Comforts”

January 21 – February 25, 2023

Court Tree Collective proudly presents “Creature Comforts” by Brooklyn based artist Jason Lustig. A collection of works made between 2019 - 2022. 

A full studio replica installed last week for Jason Lustig’s first solo exhibition “Creature Comforts” opening January 21st. 

Jason’s work hits on many different levels and collectively there is a narrative taking place. Whether putting himself into the work as a cat or a lonely landscape of a new home, there is a visual common ground that brings them all together. The imagery demonstrates humility yet defines his modest style as one can see in the intelligence of his lines and color palettes. His work is reminiscent of the art style that was forged by "The Beautiful Losers” a style that influenced and still influences many of his generation. It’s the crossroads of street culture, nature, and folklore. His work is a refreshing comfort that we appreciate and value.

Jason Lustig is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Originally from the S.F. Bay  Area Jason’s work is largely informed by the environment he grew up in. Often moving between  cities, mountains, and coastal areas, Jason uses these as the main settings of his paintings and  then adds charmingly mischievous characters to live inside them. Using a bright and saturated color palette, his paintings capture  moments in time from other worlds that seem to parallel our own.

Court Tree Collective was established in 2013 by a group of artists and creatives with the primary purpose of representing and supporting the work of emerging and established contemporary artists. Since its opening Court Tree Collective has been a staple to south Brooklyn’s emerging art scene and in a short time has exhibited a number of important exhibitions. In addition they have curated a number of exhibitions at satellite locations throughout the states and abroad.

We are a family-run art gallery specializing in emerging artists to offer a unique and intimate experience for art enthusiasts. Court Tree Collective showcases outsider art, which often defies traditional artistic conventions, alongside works by up-and-coming artists to add depth and diversity to the gallery's offerings. Visitors can expect to encounter raw, authentic expressions of creativity that challenge perceptions and ignite curiosity. By nurturing rising talent and championing unconventional voices, the gallery plays a vital role in fostering a vibrant and inclusive art community.

Our gallery is curated by artists for artists, which fosters a dynamic and supportive environment where creative visionaries can thrive. With firsthand understanding of the artistic process, the curators can showcase works that resonate deeply with both artists and audiences. This curated space celebrates diversity, innovation, and experimentation; it provides a platform for emerging and established artists to connect, collaborate, and showcase their talents. By upholding a community-driven approach to curation, the gallery becomes a vibrant hub for inspiration, dialogue, and artistic exchange.︎
