|Marriage of Convenience
|Riders of Apocalypse
In his technique he "analyses the old masters", the composition of paintings and colour, the way they depicted nature, emotions, and light and what techniques they used to achieve the desired effect. Jack does not imitate them but uses the same technique of painting in oils and glaze that demands a profound professionalism, time, perfection and patience.
J.L, a man of considerable intellectual curiosity, very widely read, avidly interested in history and contemporary life, seeks inspiration for his paintings in the worlds of philosophy, ancient cultures, mythology and literature but his work reflects the contemporary.
His paintings are full of fantasy and allegories and there are many apparently different stories in each painting, alike was the manner of medieval icon painters, and only all themes together form a complete artistic statement.
