Lot Essay

Combed ridges of oil glide in continuous motion over this dynamic work by Jason Martin. Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, as well as Eastern calligraphy, the artist applies a thick skin of pigment to the 'canvas' of aluminium with a broad brush. The choice of support is significant as each material affects the movement of the paint differently. The interaction between ambient light and the modulated surface produces a spectrum of colours, introducing an element of three-dimensionality to this monochrome painting. Discussing his work Jason Martin explains, 'I want them to have the authority of sculpture, but to have the appearance of painting', (J. Martin quoted in A. Woods, 'Jason Martin. Interview', in Transcript, vol. 2, no. 3, p. 44-45).
