Jason McCormick was born in Blenheim, New Zealand in 1967 and has lived in Nelson for 39 years.
Jason studied art at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) and has recently returned to obtain his Bachelor in Art and Media.
After completing his Bachelors, Jason is now studying for his Masters in Art and Design at Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
Jason has paintings in collections in New Zealand and abroad including Australia, Great Britain, Ireland, Middle East and the USA.
Jason exhibits regularly at galleries in Nelson, Wellington, Northland, Wanaka, Picton and Marlborough.
For over 20 years Jason has been painting with acrylic and oil paint applied with brush, sponge and roller on canvas or paper.
Jason has recently extended his practice into constructed photography. Jason constructs his scene by making table top models and photographs them.
This direction has led to Jason working with stop motion animation, incorporating Lego Mini-Figures and referencing places associated with power and control.
