Liverpool artist, Jason Jones has recently updated his website.
He has recently started painting and drawing more figurative work, especially nude male studies which is not something you see much of these days (outside of the gay scene anyway).
He has cleverly managed to switch from abstract to figurative whilst somehow retaining his quite distinctive style.
“This work has been more than six years in development. As yet untitled, I am attempting to re-evaluate the male within contemporary painting.
Drawing on aspects of pressure and stresses of modern living and work I am exploring the tension and conflict that exists, but not necessarily seen, between the body/self and external forces and stimuli. It is the physical and psychological interaction and the sensation and feeling that interests me.”
