Jason Cordingley is an Edinburgh based painter and Art educator. In 1990 he achieved a BA Honours degree in Art, four years later completing an MA in Art Education from the Institute of Education, University of London.  He has continued painting, sculpting and teaching ever since.  Jason's work has been shown in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Oxford, London, Lisbon and is collected internationally.  

Jason's style of landscape painting is uniquely vibrant, giving a poetic insight into an audacious reality of extreme colours and textures. He has developed this approach over the past thirty years using multiple layers of oil paint thickeners and glazes. By playing with paint he creates intense lighting effects that interact boldly with abstracted images of sky, sea and land. He has a particular fascination with the way in which buildings and structures punctuate the natural landscape producing dramatic backdrops for the ever-changing elements. Bridges, monuments and historic buildings are often predominant in his work.
