Today we’d like to introduce you to Jason Acton.
Jason, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
The unique story I have to tell about my life so far as an artist, is a pursuit of what makes me happy and what comes natural to me as an artist, creating. It’s being able to express my inner creative consciousness through my vision of the world I interact with. Through my creative eyes, the world is bright with color, geometric in structure and pulsing with vibration. My artwork has changed from a bright modern art style to work about consciousness, spirituality, frequency and vibration and how to translate this new knowledge of self into art. We are all conscious vibrations connected together.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
The art that I have made in the past was a reflection of my interest in modern pop art paintings in acrylic. Using primary colors in an organized, clean and geometric composition. I used the primary color palette in my works because I am a color blind artist. I am attracted to the bright popping colors.
Along with acrylics on canvas paintings, I am a screen printer, printing on fabric using images from paintings and objects I find interesting to juxtapose over each. Again, I use the primary colors of the rainbow and overlap each color starting from blue and work my way to red giving a 3 dimensional effect. To enhance this effect, I have 3D chroma depth glasses, the viewer puts on to view the artworks screen printed objects POP off the fabric. The glasses take the colors rainbow and designate distance orientations for each color of the rainbow. Blue recedes to the background, while red comes to the foreground and green, yellow and orange fill in the middle distances.
With other fabrics, I make upholstery items such as custom made head boards, furniture and wall panels with designs screen printed or airbrushed on the fabric. Along with a tufting button pattern. I create art that is bright, clean and organized which is a reflection of my personality. Other interests are from music, graphic/interior design and architecture.
I hope what people take away from my work is the amount of time and attention to detail I put into my works. I put a lot of hours in pieces to get them perfect. I put a sense of fun and positivity in my pieces with the use of the bright color palette exhibiting my playfulness in enjoying life. I’m quite the goofball at times.
In your view, what is the biggest issue artists have to deal with?
The biggest challenge facing artists today and always, has been themselves. Being able to push themselves to keep evolving, challenging there skills in new directions. Being able to be conscious of not getting stuck doing the same styles. Being able to be diverse in many types of art.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
