    Jared C. Balogh (American, 1975-2019) was a self-taught artist from Bethlehem, PA. The breadth of his work expands across many disciplines, including painting, sculpture, music video production, photography, sound art, and soundtracks for both the performing and digital arts. His vision encompassed the diverse, textured, surreal, abstract, complex, and simplistic. Much of his work revolves around themes such as humor, animals, nature, cityscapes, self-portraits, and abstraction.

    For over two decade before his passing, Balogh produced 250 works consisting of paintings, sculptures, murals and drawings, 40+ music videos, stop action animations, and an array of album covers. Also a musician, Balogh produced a prolific repertoire of sound art under various monikers which have been released on experimental/avant-garde net and record labels domestically and internationally. His compositions have been used for live performances and art installations around the world. Since 2016, his art has been displayed in galleries, cafes, and business in the Lehigh Valley, Berks County, Lancaster, and New York, and his work has been featured in performance and art installations in Australia, Italy, Spain, India, Florida, New York City, Portland (Oregon), Philadelphia, Colorado, Massachusetts, San Francisco and Brooklyn.

    Artist's Statement

    I am a self-taught artist who draws from many disciplines. My creative process is largely improvised and free-flowing, giving my work a distinctive character that has been described as Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist. Creating art for me is a subtle process of communication and discovery. Conceptually, I draw from a number of themes including: Nature, Humor, Cityscapes, Abstraction, Surrealism, Figurative, Self-Portraits, Animals, and The Unconscious/Subconscious Mind.

    My work is meant to be freely and openly interpreted. My purpose is to invoke fresh, unexpected perspectives in my audience. I aim to break conceptual boundaries through my choice of subject matter by delving into uncharted territory drawn mainly from personal experience and emotional states.
