About Jez Prior.

A series of large paintings using black and white paint to create an Illusion of dimensionality, suggested by subtle gradations of tone superimposed on the pattern first created by the use of pure white on black.I became fascinated with the high contrast of the paint and creating pattern using organic repetitions to suggest form .
