Treadwell’s work leans toward a series of invented forms, which employ optical deceptions, and often bend the space between ambiguity and certainty. He adopts Op Art tenets, such as shimmering and shifting line and color, and channels various retro-aesthetics including 80’s nostalgia, sci-fi, futurism, and digital graphics. Treadwell states, “I experiment by mashing bizarre ingredients together in anticipation of new and unfamiliar relationships”. Treadwell studied painting and sculpture at the State University of New York at Cortland, and received his MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Boston, South Korea, Vancouver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Dallas, and Chicago. He’s also been featured in numerous publications including Juxtapoz Magazine, Hi-Fructose Magazine, New American Paintings, Art Maze Magazine, JPEOPLE Magazine, Carne Magazine, and Bizzarre Magazine. Jaime is represented by Mirus Gallery in San Francisco and lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
