Jason McHenry has been an artist his whole life. While a student at Visual & Performing Arts High School in St. Louis he began working on a creative exercise that revolved around making dozens of small paintings every day. He continued this same creative exercise through college and eventually it developed into a habit that would follow him the rest of his life.
After producing a large number of these little paintings there was a goal to try and make a thousand of these pieces. And once that goal was reached the idea of doing a million of them was suggested and that’s currently the idea behind what’s now known as the One Thousand Thousand project.
He still works on new pieces just about every day and other artists have joined in to try the creative exercise on their own and in many cases offer their own works in contribution towards the goal of a million. The current count is just past the First Third marking over 333,333 pieces of art.
The work shown at Kaleid Gallery represent the most recent pieces from the One Thousand Thousand project and are selected by Jason as personal favorites.
