Artist Statement

My creative work is an attempt to evoke an inner curiosity that urges the viewer to come in close and have a sensory experience with the texture and colors. The desire to explore the shadows and textures of something is so primal, sensual, and very inspiring to me.  

There is often a resemblance to nature in my work, or something organic and alien. I am captivated by the play of luminescence  and shadow, iridescence and vibrant color on textures. Water flowing over rocks, sand and glistening shells, nature taking control, and unusual creatures make my imagination fire up. 

Sometimes the work is unavoidably motivated by the current news and politics.


There is always a mixed assortment of materials that must be used to produce a three-dimensional, sculptural painting.





Jason Aurelio-Thomas lives and works in New York.
