Press Release

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is pleased to present Constructing Color / Painting by Jason Stewart, an exhibition by New York City / Hudson Valley based artist Jason Stewart. This is Jason’s first show at Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art and his eighth solo show in NYC.

 

With a veteran eye, Jason explores pure color: yellows, reds, greens, oranges, blues, greys, and blacks to construct the visual experience, often inviting urgent shifts into the visual field. 

 

Recent exhibitions include Geary Contemporary, NY, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Great Barrington, MA; and The Portland Museum of Art, Portland, ME.

 

Jason studied with Richard Stankeiwicz at the University at Albany, during his MFA in painting.

 

The author, publisher, and gallery owner Geoffrey Young states:

If Stewart can be said to “represent” abstraction, it is because his stylistic realism celebrates painting’s great romance with perception, color and form.
