Jason's work is an investigation into the notion of transience and is informed by an interest in religious imagery, mythology and ancient pre-christian sacred texts to name a few and he explores these themes using the motifs of figure and landscape. Inspired also by Japanese architecture and aesthetics, he suggests a world not so far from our own, but not so near as to be tangible. In an age where acquisition, commodity and the 'must-have' dominate, his work positions itself with the notion of 'flux' as the centre of his enquiries.

He uses a variety of media to explore these ideas; Western and Japanese woodblock printmaking methods, lithography, digital print and painting. All these methods are a natural extension of his drawing practice, which is central to his work, but allow a degree of uncertainty and randomness to take shape within his images. Impermanent, imperfect and incomplete, in stark contrast to the modernist notion of permanence, perfection and completeness.

Jason graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2007. He also studied in Japan from October to December of 2008, where he learnt traditional Japanese printmaking methods.
