Artist Statement

Jacob Joubert: USA
21,000 people die from hunger each day. 2.5% of the World’s population was killed in WWII. The U.S. Government sent $350 million to aid victims of the South Asian Tsunami and 1.3 billion to Egypt’s Military in 2004.

Numbers have power. They are works of poetry that ground abstract concepts of the human condition in hard reality. Paintings have power. They are works of fiction and nonfiction that speak to representations of the world that exists around them.

By separating numbers from their original context, I give them new life. Not devoid of meaning, but free to flourish within the context of the viewer’s perception.
