About Jason Limon
Jason Limon was born in San Antonio, Texas, where he continues to reside with his wife and two daughters. In early 2007 he moved from a twelve year career in graphic design to painting and illustrating full-time. He has had a recent solo exhibition at Bold Hype Gallery in New York city and has exhibited work in galleries across the U.S. and in parts of Europe.
Though dark and gloomy at a first glance, Jason Limon’s paintings reject the Western notion of death as something to be feared. Instead, Limon portrays skulls as part of a regenerative cycle, inspiring hope for a new beginning with bouncy organic forms that spring from hollow eye-sockets or emerge from the shadows. Many of his works feature goddess-like female figures in elegant gowns. These characters seem to harness the powers of nature; aloe shapes float around them and their gowns are composed of coils resembling vines creeping up the side of a building. The light in Limon’s paintings recalls a forest at dusk; the dimly lit figures connote a sense of secrecy, like a hushed whisper in a ritualistic space. (text: Hi-Fructose.com)
