Jayson Oliveria‘s works do not examine painting, they are paintings. For Oliveria painting means „the act of creating a painting.“
He sees his work as a persiflage of himself and painting itself.
Oliveria‘s works consist of several layers which do not necessarily correspond- just like a train of thoughts. Figurative elements become
abstract through the superimposing of layers and painting becomes a method – on which end a new beginning appears.
Oliveria works consistently and in series. He has been invited to join international exhibitions, for example the Tate Turbine Hall, London
in 2010, and has received several awards, such as the CCP 13th Artist Award 2006 and the Ateneo Art Award 2004.
„ruined before it hits the ground“ is Jayson Oliveria‘s first solo exhibition in Europe.
He will show works from his residency in Galerie Zimmermann Kratochwill.
