The Spring Auction 2020 (10/83)


A bold and gestural abstract painting by the British painter Jason Tessier.

Jason's paintings continue a long tradition of abstract and conceptual art history. His artwork and his creative process engage with both the visual and physical elements of painting. They experiment with the materialistic properties of the canvas and the materials placed upon it.

Using traditional artist materials such as oil paint, Jason mixes other materials such as acrylic, graphite and pastels and complicates the paintings surface with traces, marks and interventions. In merging this assortment of materials, the works outline a certain kind of pre-determined abstract formulated language, creating a visual and physical conversation upon the canvas.
