Published by Kerber. Text by Udo Kittelmann. Preface by Malte Christopher Boecker.
Best known for his monochromatic works with synthetic-feeling combed surfaces, painter Jason Martin (born in New Jersey in 1970) here presents recent drawings, paintings and sculptural pieces, as well as his first artworks actually made for a sacred space--the Church of the Apostles in GŁtersloh, Germany.

Jason Martin's work is best described through its method of production: partly expressive and partly minimal, he uses his bodily movement to implement deep set fissures from one side of the canvas to the other in a continuous trail, letting unpredictable events unfold in the spatial and rhythmical regularity of the painting. Though the paintings' creation is strongly based on the methodology of approach, Martin seeks validation for his work from a more poetic instinct, allowing the viewer to form associations, directed by the form, texture and color of the work. The flow and varying intensity create a character indigenous to each piece, animating the tradition of monochrome and color field painting that stretches from Kasimir Malevich to Robert Ryman.
