Jason is a dedicated artist that can be found passionately and endlessly working in his Colorado studio.
” I am a simple artistic expressionist. I purely paint from the heart, with loose concepts and visions of what the final outcome should be. I paint encaustic abstracts which include a variety of techniques and mediums, such as, acrylic paints, alcohol inks, oil pastes, metallics, pigments, as well as gold and silver leaf. The laborious technique of heating and cooling the wax and adding pigments, transforms each piece into a unique layered and textured dimensional art piece. Due to the uniqueness of working with heat and wax, the work ultimately looks like the unrestrained concept that I envisioned.Most always greater and more spectacular than I expected. The final outcome is something organic, without boundaries and literally free-flowing. I consider each finished piece an accurate reflection of my insight”.
