Jason Amster Paintings
My objective in painting is to explore the drama present in the scenes around us. I am a representational painter focused on creating images that reveal the innate magnificence of light illuminating surface. I would like the viewer to feel the presence of light bathing the subjects I have painted. After someone has seen my painting, I want them to sense that they have appreciated anew the visual beauty of our world.

Artist's Statement:
My paintings grow out of a perception of the striking beauty I sense in a scene or subject. I am moved not only by a subject’s appearance—color, shape, line, and form — but also by how these elements cooperate abstractly. An object’s appearance relies on light; although this interaction is often taken for granted due to the immediacy of the object itself. Reflection, refraction, intensity, and direction of light create innumerable combinations of abstract visual data that are organized into coherent images. As an artist it is essential to interpret this experience of light and create a visual expression of that experience. Two apples on a tablecloth are more than only that. Painting this arrangement is a chance to explore delicate color relationships, foreground/background-push/pull, the two masses in balance, or positive space and negative space interacting. Within even a simple scene there is an intimacy between the formal relationships and what they represent.
