A passion for the sea
Jason first became
interested in painting the sea in watercolour after attempting to learn
to surf in the early 90’s. The experience of the power and beauty of the
sea at close quarters had a profound influence on his art creating a
fascination for seascape that has lasted almost twenty years.
In this exhibition in May
2012, Jason’s work was shown alongside photographer Mike Tilley, whose
work beautifully captures the movement in water with photographs that
have a painterly feel. This exhibition inevitably had visitors comparing
the artists approaches to the same subject.
