He received his BFA in studio art from James Madison University in 2017, where he was a recipient of a CVPA Research Grant and participated in a photography studio in Prague. His work typically explores psychological concepts, such as human emotions, thought, and mental illness. Jorge works with analog photographic techniques, printmaking, fibers, and installation.
