Jason Towne is a visual Artist who paints in two styles: Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art.
Jason started his adventure into painting when his Mother passed away in 2002. He needed a way to heal and the act of painting helped fill the void. Creating art became the only emotional coping mechanism Jason relied on at that time. Now, painting is more about the process of making art. A process that is still introspective and healing, but also creates a headspace where he loves what he's doing so much that while painting Jason looses track of time and feels a sense of peace.
When making a painting Jason uses many layers and a range of different techniques. A painting might be complete after only two or three layers; other times, a painting can take over a hundred layers to complete. "My painting techniques allow for flexibility needed to shift my approach as a painting develops into a finished piece."
Here’s the list of my favorite techniques: 1.) Brushwork 2.) Dripping 3.) Stencils 4.) Spray Paint 5.) Alcohol Mix 6.) Paint Pens 7.) Pallet Knife
"Every layer is the background until the final layer is applied and dry."
