Jason John paints extraordinarily detailed scenes of dramatic narratives. These stories touch on the ephemeral side of a serendipitous coincidence – that cold forbidden zone of the wandering brain. More after the jump!
You can leave behind the pedantic and stuffy stereotype of American “realism” when you take a look at Jason John’s work. Instead of the gimmick associated with the controlled paintbrush, we get a contemporary twist of insight and engaging storyline. I think of the young night, a self conscious moment, and seeing your breath in the cold.
Jason John is currently a professor at the University of North Florida
