Jason Anderson started his art career working on restoration projects like York Minster, Gloucester and Wells cathedrals as part of a stained glass apprenticeship. Quickly progressing on to design work which taught him to compose and stylise subject matter around a 'jigsaw' of painted glass - an approach that still drives his work today.
“I am fascinated by colour and like to work with a strong palette to create deep impasto effects with the knife and brush. I relish 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 me 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 which, like the landscape, is constantly changing. So when youmove around the room and the ridges of paint catch the light, there is always something new to see."
