Hey there friendly friends! I’ve been feeling a little slacking in the fine art department here on the blog so today’s post is all about that. I was recently introduced to the work of Jeremy Mason (Financial Planner by day, artist by night) and was instantly intrigued. The pieces are abstract (which I love) and are constructed with some unique materials; oil, wax, & wood. Did I mention the awesome use of color? After talking a little with Jeremy through email, this is what he had to say about his work.
“I love modern art with an antique sensibility. I am inspired by art and design that is as comfortable as it is challenging. As such, I attempt to use the most traditional materials I can in my work.
My latest series was made using encaustic wax, a medium that dates back to the Egyptian times and was revived by modern artist Jasper Johns. For the base of each painting I brushed wood panels with a rust mixture historically used for staining gun stocks. The wax is used to seal the wood grain and can be clear for building layers or pigmented to add color. ” –Jeremy
