Jason Martin (b. 1970 in Jersey, United Kingdom) is a British artist whose thickly textured paintings achieve uniquely sculptural surfaces. Known for his rich, monochromatic works, Martin layers oil paint or acrylic gel atop a metal or Plexiglas substrate, and then drags a comb-like tool through the substance to create voluminous striations. He made his solo debut in 1996 at the Lisson Gallery, one of London’s most prominent venues, and participated the following year in the Royal Academy’s revolutionary exhibition Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection. Martin’s works are held in the collections of the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, the Denver Art Museum, the Sammlung Essl in Vienna, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., among others.
