Jason Wright is an artist that creates dramatic landscapes through the use of geometric lines and complex perspectives. Inspired by the dwellings in which we live, the work brings life to sometimes overlooked and forgotten elements of our land. His pared-down images are distilled to their essence and portrayed with graphic style in precise shapes, bold lines and strong colors, giving them immediacy and vigor. With his signature hard-edge style, Wright’s work is at its heart a study of the beauty of isolation.
He studied Painting and Graphic Design at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC. Jason was immersed in art from a young age, illustrating and designing graphics for the surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding industry. Apart from his current body of work, he is an accomplished mix media painter, as well as a medaled action sports athlete. His current work focuses on the theory of shelter, and explores the relationship between the simplistic shape of a home and it’s ever presence in our lives, his work is generally rendered in a dusk, dawn, or full moon setting. Wright’s passion for HDR and long exposure photography is showcased in his dramatic skies. His mediums are mainly oil and acrylic, painted with a palette knife.
