  • About the work

This is an original graphite drawing with painted gouache background on paper mounted on panel by Jason Andrew Turner measuring 14in x 11in. The piece has a simple wood border framing it, as pictured, and ships ready to hang.

Artist Statement // My work is an investigation of the rhythm and lifetime of the portrait. Methodically rendered and reliant on the tool, I fill the frame with dense lines with occasional pops of color. I create obsessive compulsive environments from my own experience, while interlacing imagined stories that are left to the viewer to navigate and attribute their own meaning; as if building a vast space for the participants to exist and form their own story within the created world. I utilize the tool and its reaction with the surface in order to show its weight and influence my hand. In my work there is a visual detachment between the participants in the narrative and the mechanically produced marks. The artworks serve as a mirror for the viewer to slip into an entangled consciousness; a shared mysticism of space and form, ultimately embracing life and death and the experience between the lines.
