Jason Anderson creates impressionistic views using pixelated patches of pastel-toned oil paint.
My art career started with a stained glass apprenticeship – during which I was lucky enough to work on restoration projects such as York Minster, Gloucester and Wells cathedrals.
I quickly progressed onto design work which taught me to compose and stylize subject matter around a ‘jigsaw’ of painted glass – an approach which still drives my work today.
I am fascinated by colour and work with a strong palette to create deep impasto effects with the paint.
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, as you move around the room and the ridges of paint catch the light, there is always something new to see.
