Jason Brooks

British , 1968 -

Brooks is closely associated with the generation of artists who emerged in Britain in the early nineties to great international acclaim and he is known for images which intensify the portraiture process more than any photographic medium.



Jason Brooks recent work explores old masterpieces and anonymous found paintings, adopting the same techniques, images that he reworks, crops and repaints. It is a way of looking at art history through the eyes of others who have looked at art history. On a very simple level it affirms the continued faith that painters retain in the medium.
