Jason Mulligan

An ingenious negotiation of the ancient and the contemporary, Jason’s inspirations include prehistoric tools and archaeological archetypes and relics. Despite their obviously static nature there is a sense of aliveness and character which dominates each sculptural encounter. Each piece contains power and potential; the presence they hold gives the impression that they are sentinels, guardians or forgotten ancient objects. The ambiguous nature of each sculpture’s identity invites the viewer to try and find multiple readings, their mystery and energy ultimately lying within their elusiveness.

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 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.
