Jason Thompson (born 1970)
Wilson Stephens & Jones are delighted that we now represent the work of Jason Thompson (born 1970). Liverpool born and bred, he
studied at Chelsea Collage of Art for both his BA & MA. His studio is in Liverpool and he has shown locally, including shows at his
home town`s Cornerstone Gallery and with Castlefield Gallery in Manchester.
Jasons work was selected for the exhibition for the John Moores painting prize, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool 2010 and was one of three finalists in the Liverpool art prize in 2014.
Jason uses enamel paints and layers of varnish on wooden panels which are usually found. He describes his paintings as having
"a quality that is somewhere between a sacred icon and an old shed door".
The British Arts Council selected 3 of Jason`s paintings for their collection in 2015.
