About the Work
Royal Jarmon is offering us the escape we deserve. A chance to sneak away, catch a breath of city air as the wind tells its stories of debris, above and below. Like classic still lifes, Jarmon’s fire escape paintings capture objects in scenes of momentary stillness, suspending reality within a world ostensibly in flux. In his new hand-embellished series, Escape, Jarmon has created 20 unique scenes that typify his exploration of this legendary element of New York City architecture. Objects in the foreground come alive, becoming the fixation of our daydreams, portals through which we escape, while the backgrounds remain deliberately hazy. The act of creation is itself an avenue to freedom; in his body of work, Jarmon has experimented with abstracted, flattened versions of maps of the United States and NASCAR vehicles, demonstrating an ongoing examination of psychological and material relations. And perhaps this, the opportunity to look at things differently, is the best escape of all.
Royal Jarmon has held solo exhibitions at Allouche Benias Gallery (Athens), Over the Influence (Hong Kong), The Hole (New York), and Castor Gallery (New York) among others. Select group exhibitions include presentations at The Hole, Mott Projects (Catskill), Silver Art Projects (New York), Ramp Gallery (London), and Eric Firestone Gallery (East Hampton). Jarmon currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Authentication & Resale

This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Please email email@example.com to have this work framed.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
