About Jason Martin

Jason Martin makes sensual, almost three-dimensional paintings—compositions of thickly impastoed modeling paste painted a single, rich color. Martin bows to Abstract Expressionism with his obvious focus on process and the intensely expressive gesture that runs throughout his work. Although his paintings—ranging in size from 20 inches to six feet—appear to be non-objective investigations of the line separating painting from sculpture, Martin’s titles, such as Torah, Nocture, Genus, Aether, Crux, and Storm, suggest references to cultural experience, scientific knowledge, and the natural world.

British, b. 1970, Jersey, United Kingdom
