My name is Jason Acton and I am a color-blind artist. I use the primary colors to create a organized, clean, and geometric balance to my compositions. My artistic style is inspired from Pop Art because the use of primary colors on a two-dimensional surface.
On canvas, I use complementary and primary colors, dots, and the occasional use of shading to create the idea of motion, depth, and three-dimensional effects. Each color has 4 or 5 layers of paint applied to them to give a thick opaque paint application. Large canvas works range in hours from 400 to 500. Medium range pieces can go up to 30 hours.
In addition to pop acrylic works, I use everyday images and images from paintings that are turned into stencils for screen printing onto fabric canvases, overlapping the design in 4 to 6 colors. These stencils are hand drawn and cut out with an x-acto knife. Finally the fabric canvases get wrapped around stretcher bars with the same matching blank fabric piece on the back.
When viewing screen prints live in person you can put on 3D glasses that allow the viewer to see the screen print designs POP off the fabric. The glasses take the color rainbow colors and designate distance orientations for each color of the rainbow. Blue recedes to the back round while Red comes to the foreground and the colors in between fill in the middle distances.
Coming from the preferred style of pop art, I create paintings, which reflect my personality, interests in music, as well as my interests in graphic/interior design and architecture.
Some of my favorite artists are Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, K
andinsky, Piet Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Hugo Ball, Mies Van Der Rohe.
