Are you and Kent sharing models? And how long have you been studying under him?

JasonShawnAlexander said...

Thanks! Oil on Canvas. 30x30. I don't think kent and I have ever used the same model. I've never studied under anyone, really. Kent and I shared a studio in North Carolina for a couple of years before we moved out to LA.

I like the way the light within your figures seem to glow against the more muted skin tones. A little reminscent of Odd Nerdrums current work. How do you like the contrast of working smaller and more graphically compared to the larger oils? You have a very nice balance within both disciplines.

JasonShawnAlexander said...

Thank you. I do like Nerdrum...I love his layering. Guy is amazing. I love guys like Freud, Shani Rhys James, Francis Bacon, Patrick Graham, Goya, Sargent, Saville.....I looked at your page. Nice work. Are you a fan of Saville as well? There are some great patches of paint in your work that remind me of her a bit. Justin mortimer is great as well. MMMMM.
