The title of Jason Martin's latest exhibition evokes all sorts of Rousseau fantasies of the South Pacific, but the mostly monochromatic oil-on-aluminum paintings themselves are open to interpretation. All sorts of analogies were bandied about at lunch--from Turner and O'Keefe to seaweed and of course, hair. The curves are created using brushes he has specially adapted and uses in an extremely physical way that record the movement of his body.
Stay tuned, Jason will be dropping by to chat with Trust Your Style in the next few weeks.
