Jason Oliva: About

 

Jason Oliva was born in 1970. He is a full time painter living and working in New York City. His works largely concentrate on the ‘singular’ – an animal, a flower, a building, an object – where the noise of a detailed background or other subject matter has been removed.

‘I like to leave room for the viewer and prefer not to attach images to a higher power, place or time. I prefer the painting to be about one ‘thing’ …. its a restraint, or constraint or a rule, let’s say, and within those boundaries the image takes on a different or greater meaning, even’. (Jason Oliva 2012)
