Jason Thompson



12 Prince's Dock


'Fluency is the most important thing when I make a painting.

When I paint, I spend a long time trying not to have any ideas.

I work best when I feel inundated by miraculousness.

I make the same paintings over and over again and each time they are different.

I seem to have a kind of vocabulary of shapes and types of line that are suggestive of certain themes but any subject or purpose in my painting relies more on the fluency of it's production, or the authenticity of the attempt at fluency.

I like to imagine that there is an innate urge or a tropism towards the articulation of being alive.

I like to think my paintings can be read as one can read entrails or the flight of migrating birds.

I think drawing is an act of participation and of contemplation, and art is as useless and as important as prayer.'

Jason Thompson was born in Liverpool in 1970. He studied: BA and MA at Chelsea College of Art, London.

Jason has taken part in several group shows and competitions. He returned to Liverpool in 1994 and has been painting steadily ever since.
