Jason Brooks: Origins

30 June 2015 - 31 July 2015

Press Release

Exhibition Catalogue

Artist Info

Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to announce Origins, an exhibition of new works by Jason Brooks.

Seven apparently abstract paintings reveal an unexpectedly tactile experience of viewing paint. The works, each identical in size and orientation, differ in their individual spectrums of strong, sometimes garish, colours that swirl, overlap and accumulate in the creation of a new visceral, yet highly analytical, style. Paint drips onto the exposed sides of the canvases, to make transparent the process of rendering faultless illusion, revealing what Michael Bracewell has called ‘the object residue of an addiction to process, in which process conflates desire, satiation, surface, tension, release and texture.’
