Jason Martin (Jersey, 1970) became known in the international art scene in the nineties.
His work adheres to the western tradition of gestural painting, where he produces monochromatic paintings on an aluminum background in which the brushstroke becomes the theme of the piece. Color is the starting point, and the background remains saturated - sometimes visible, sometimes invisible - through the grooves made by the brushstroke. The light hides in the cracks, sculpted by the line of the brush.
The unique style of work of Martin in the luxurious surfaces of his monochromatic paintings, using brushes made to measure, has become internationally known.
Martin's works have been widely exhibited in the United States and Europe in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection of Venice at 2009 and at the Contemporary Art Center of Malaga at 2008. His works are included in numerous private and public collections around the world, such as the Denver Art Museum, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC.
