Lost in the sauce
“Lost in The Sauce” is the artists first solo exhibition in London and is the result of his award as winner of the 2018 Free Range Individual Award. The exhibition continues until 14th February.
Born in Zimbabwe in 1995, Jasper Pedyo attended De Montfort University, (Furniture Design) then Leeds Arts University, (Fine Arts). He currently lives and works outside of Sheffield.
The concept of this current show “Lost in the Sauce” is to present Jasper’s paintings in a 3-dimensional space blurring the lines between sculpture and mere painting.
“Lost in the Sauce” encompasses all the ideas that drive his work; a pure expression of colour and form as a way to thrust his ideas of beauty and anaesthetic to a larger audience.
The young artists' work sets out to expand on traditional art composition, by abstracting the shape of the canvas form, referencing pop culture. His intentions are for the viewer to experience his artwork with solely instinctive and physical responses to the work's structure, colour, and surrounding space rather than with contextual or interpretive analysis. Thus he presents bold and contrasting colours, free of gestural brushstrokes or recognisable imagery.
Jasper endeavours to create a powerful and beautiful visual experience
