1xRUN Thru Interview
Dualism – Radiance by Jason Limon
1xRun: Was this piece part of a recent theme, series or show that you had? If so how did it fit into that given grouping?
Jason Limon: At the beginning of this year I began to explore the idea of light versus dark. I spend a lot of time (mood-wise) in the dark area, but I always try to explore past that and look into lighter subjects or feelings. This piece is part of a series called “Dualism” and it is basically made up of two pieces, one side portraying a struggle to keep the light going and the other side trying to get out of the dark.
1xRUN: What materials were used to create this piece with?
Jason Limon: It was painted with acrylics on wood panels.
1xRun: When was the piece created?
Jason Limon: I did this piece in February of 2015. It took me about two weeks on and off to complete.
1xRun: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?
Jason Limon: I’ve been reading various books on mythology and religion and know that through time many were based on worshipping the sun and all have elements of good vs. evil. Just like these beliefs, people struggle with dark feelings within them and want to escape those feeling, I being one of them. I try release some of these feeling in my more recent paintings.
