Jason de Graaf from Quebec describes his process as “staging an alternate reality”. In his paintings, he strives to capture a vibrant depth that is rarely found in photography, rather than depicting reality faithfully. The relationship between light and reflective, transparent surfaces is a recurring theme. De Graaf regards it as a means to communicate the mysterious and intuitive, beneath the surface: “My journey to understand those qualities which convey a sense of wonder and intrigue, so I try to remain open to new ideas throughout.””
"Jason De Graaf has a unique relationship to steel marbles. How he portrays the reflections is out of this world."
