JASON HAWKRIDGE: GEOMETRIC WORKS
7 June-15 July 2018
A bold, bright selection of geometric canvases.
Jason is a full-time painter, a professional multi-discipline artist who lives and works in Walthamstow, where he also runs a life-drawing class.
He studied Graphic Design on a YTS scheme before going on to study Illustration at Kent Institute of Art and Design.
Painting, drawing, print-making and wall effects are some of the mediums Jason uses to explore various approaches to colour, texture and composition. Having travelled to hot climates searching for exotic colour to inspire his work it’s ironic that what he missed most about home was the progression of colour through the seasons. This changing palette is what inspired the colours in these works.
Fusing fine art painting processes with a knowledge of design, geometry and pattern, Jason’s application of colour is often bold and yet his innate understanding of subtlety of tone is evident in the distressed paint finishes he produces creating atmosphere and textural depth. To keep the compositions dynamic, and movement fluid he looks to classical music and dance styles such as ballet, a process which is fed by his love for drawing.
