Jade Thompson

  • Artist’s Statement

    Jade likes to use many types of materials such as acrylics, ink, oil and dry pastels, gouache, house paint, charcoal and sometimes collage. He builds his work in layers which give the work depth and in parts shows the complete journey of the painting. Jade is curious about how the eye views an image, how it focuses on a small detail and then makes up the missing information. This is reflected in Jade’s paintings, where his paintings are detailed in parts and unfinished in others. ‘When I create my artworks, I try to let go and create with freedom and honesty, not worrying about mistakes and the end declares itself. All my works are journeys within themselves. In my artwork I try capture an element of mood or feeling about the person or place I am painting. All my works contain a story.’
