Abstract oil cityscapes by Jason Anderson

Dec 27, 2020 | Art

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 stylise 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.
