You need to have an up-to-date personal statement.
Jason Cook is undertaking his second year of studies and is a student of Cardiff School of Art and Design. Presently he is interested in minimalism/ surrounding groups, material technicalities, and finding a place for himself in our post-art society.
Jason’s current productions invite the audience to observe and reflect. The work, while static may present or deny the opportunity to conceptually enter the re-enacted spaces. The use of shape, line and colour give valuable cues to where the viewer may be situated upon arrival. Here you may draw attention to your own narrative or speculate on the creators story having been abstracted.
The material use is a focus of the work and contextual footings are unearthed, poured and rolled from the artists hand onto canvas. Reference to his history, locations and aspirations are subtly hinted to in the intention to keep ambiguity.
