A Master in striking textured abstracts

Stacks Image 3142

Jason Anderson is a contemporary artist best know for his striking textured abstracts. He started his art career working on restoration projects like York Minster, Gloucester, and Wells cathedrals as part of a stained glass apprenticeship. He quickly progressed onto design work which taught him to compose and stylize subject matter around a 'jigsaw' of painted glass - an approach that still drives his work today.

Jason is fascinated by colour and works with a strong palette to create deep impasto effects with the paint.

He relishes the often frantic nature of mixing and arranging the paint in thick impressionistic daubs and submitting to a process that creates its own detail and form.

This forces him to be bold and decisive; it also produces a kaleidoscope of shape and tone (reminiscent of stained-glass) which portrays the ever-present movement and energy found in nature.

This approach creates a painting that, like the landscape, is constantly changing. So when one moves around the room and the ridges of paint catch the light, there is always something new to see.
