Jason’s Death Romantic style is often imitated but his signature is unmistakeable in his pieces, not least because he is both artistically and technically accomplished. These pieces are remarkable for being ultimately paradoxical. At the same time they are ephemeral yet solid, spiritual yet prosaic. Portraying death through the lively animation of youthful life, they manage to be surreal as well as realistic. The longer one looks at them the depth of the artists thinking becomes apparent. He inverts the natural order of things by making the bones of the skull prior to the features, skin and muscle which it subsumes.
