bis 24.06. | #3869ARTatBerlin | Buchmann Galerie shows on 28. April 2023 the exhibition of the artist Jason Martin.
Buchmann Galerie is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by British painter Jason Martin on the occasion of the Gallery Weekend Berlin 2023. The new oil paintings are characterised by a heavy impasto that gives some of the works an almost sculptural expression. From a monochrome chromaticity of anthracite and black to a multicoloured palette of strong colours of yellow, blue and red, the paintings vibrate the whole space of the gallery with their emotional presence. Jason Martin’s work can be situated between minimalism and abstract expressionism. In various groups of works, Jason Martin uses every conceivable method to apply paint to address the fundamental question of painterly spatiality and the rhetoric of paint application.
Painting for Jason Martin is also a performative act that leaves room for chance to create works that are lush, attractive, and full of power. Many of his works straddle the fine line between painting and sculpture, which the artist has repeatedly explored and differentiated in recent years in various groups of works. Jason Martin’s works constitute a consciously controlled aesthetic and a conceptual statement. The nature of his non-representational work constantly stimulates the viewer’s imagination.
Born on the Channel Island of Jersey in 1970, Jason Martin has a BA from Goldsmiths, University of London, Jason Martin was a participant in the legendary 1997 exhibition Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection at the Royal Academy in London and the Museum Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin. The Buchmann Galerie presented Jason Martin for the first time in 2018, this being the artist’s first solo exhibition in a gallery in Germany. He lives and works in London and South Portugal. Jason Martin’s work is held in international private and public collections, including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, Sprengel Museum in Hanover, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary in Vienna and the Schaufler Foundation Schauwerk Sindelfingen.
