2020 Monuments & Canyons Artist: Jason McCullough

Jason D. McCullough is an oil painter specializing in contemporary Plein Aire, Landscape, Figure and Portraiture. He was tutored in painting and drawing from an early age and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a concentration in Painting from Colorado State University in Fort Collins Colorado in 1998. He has shown at various galleries in Denver CO and Seattle WA. While formerly concentrating on large scale abstract work the last ten to fifteen years have seen a return to referential based paintings and paintings drawn from direct observation, collections of studies and photographic response. He is intrigued by the idea of Plein Aire Painting and the ability to capture a specific moment in time at a specific location under constantly changing sensory conditions.
“The act of Plein Aire painting is an exercise in athletic meditation. One must physically seek out locations based on structure, light, depth of view and mood, work swiftly in technique and application and finally bow to the day, accepting what was given in that moment.”
