  • subtly amazing.

  • I am a big fan of Jason’s work. Here is an interview I did with Jason a couple of years ago (http://wearduringorangealert.blogspot.com/2008/02/artist-of-week_20.html).

  • his paintings are pretty awesome. maybe this is a cynical interpretation but they remind me of someone on the verge of a complete emotional meltdown (esp. 1,3 & 5).

  • LOVE! the repition and pattern, and thoughtfulness of the colors. way to be complex while still keeping it intact and simple enough to have a bang!

  • DylanS

    I love these.

  • the motion in these is excellent.

    Jason come back to New York. We miss you!! I love where you have taken yourself since the days when we were in school. For me, it’s wonderful to see what you were doing back in the day and see it transform into this beautiful work. CONGRATS you deserve it.
