“Age ain’t nothing but a number” is a credo artist Jason Bard Yarmosky lives by. The 26-year-old Poughkeepsie, NY born oil painter has been making waves with his series of hauntingly beautiful paintings of his aging grandparents.

In his new series, “Dream of the Soft Look,” Jason takes a more intimate approach, with black and white close ups, mixed imagery

Dream of the Soft Look, continues my exploration of the human life cycle. Building on my earlier work in the Elder Kinder series, these new paintings invite the viewer into intimate moments of truth, many of which are reflected in the model’s gaze in a mirror.
The resulting view sparks an external/internal conversation filled with moments of bewilderment, frustration, humor, and wonder as the aged body is reflected back at the still vibrant soul, dreaming of the soft look.

These new works explore the tension between the physical and psychological elements of aging. However the show also has much to do with memory, and its enduring role throughout the life cycle. My black-and-white paintings reflect the “realness” of now. They are the mirror of the present, while the “idealized” memory, often colored over time, is presented in myriad pigments.
