Jason Mulligan

An ingenious negotiation of the ancient and the contemporary, Jason’s inspirations include prehistoric tools and archaeological archetypes. There is a sense of vigour and character in each sculptural encounter. The work contains power and potential, taking on the role of sentinels, guardians or forgotten ancient objects. The ambiguous nature of each sculpture’s identity invites the viewer to find multiple readings. 

Originally from Northern Ireland, Jason studied Fine Art sculpture at the University of Northumbria. In 1994 he worked with the Japanese stone carver and Henry Moore Fellow, Hideo Furuta. Jason made his first trip to the marble quarries of Carrara in Italy in 1996, assisting the British stone sculptor, Paul Mason. Jason's work is held in collections in the USA, Norway, France and the UK. He exhibits in both group and solo exhibitions with a variety of larger public works on display throughout the UK and Eire. He now works and lives in Kent.
