Mr. Jago Fuel From Fumes Print On Sale Today

Most recently, Mr. Jago has taken the idioms of spray painting to a level of sophistication rarely seen in the medium, completely uninhibited by any notions of what spray painting is, or should be. His work is the result of a stream-of-consciousness approach, where meaning presents itself through process. One might well use the phrase abstract expressionism, since form and structure have undergone a process of abstraction, whilst primarily being emotionally expressive. It is both formally organized and balanced, as well as spontaneous and visceral. Read on below as Mr. Jago tells us about his 1xRUN Debut "Fuel from Fumes".

"The client by whom the piece was commissioned specifically requested a painting on a black background. That request proved challenging to the way I try to balance colours and marks. I also find composition on a square canvas more difficult than working in landscape on a rectangular canvas. Given these challenges, I was very pleased with the outcome of this piece. On the one hand, this piece laments the consumption of fossil fuels by the human race. Wastefulness, in a sense, is one of my preoccupations - fuel to my artistic output, however negative. On the other hand, the painting also imagines the possibility of being able to transform fumes into something useful - a fantasy of being able to refuel from what is in the ether. " - Mr. Jago
