Quotes
Sloan Schaffer, dedicated to emerging narrative painters and 101/exhibit founder writes: “Jason’s work deeply penetrates immediately, directly to the core of integrity; often depicting figurative imagery, wretched in hyper-critical spaces — where mind, body and spirit hangs in the balance of existential woe.”

Dennis, fine art collector, contributes, “You cannot own one of Jason Shawn Alexander’s paintings; it owns you. His work is of our time and yet timeless. It has a rawness that can be perceived by all our senses. He takes us to the most inconvenient places and we cannot help but to embrace them while keeping our distance for its presence is a powerful earthquake.”

More . . .
{sic} or [sic] can be thought of as an editing term meaning, “that’s really how it appears in the original.” More of a statement about things, as they are, and less a form of a question. {sic} Looks to capture deep, human emotion at the vulnerable instant Jason’s subjects let their guard down. Jason carefully chooses his protagonists; disseminates, and transfers thoughtful glimpses onto the canvas surface. Thick brush strokes; layered textural elements; and generously applied varnishes — methodically reveal — intense, psychological dioramas infused with dramatic narrative.
