"The overall theme of this series was overcoming obstacles and tough times to reach a greater goal, this piece in particular referencing the betrayal of Jesus by Judas, which to some may seem like a direct religious or biblical reference, but it in fact can be related to our every day life in the feeling of betrayal which is something we have to deal with from friends, coworkers and sometimes even family/loved ones. It's a very tough thing to get over, and something i wanted to transcend into my painting.
This piece, like a lot of my work was inspired by a renaissance painting. In this case it was a Caravaggio piece. Coming from a background in graphic design and just design in general, aesthetically I like playing off of symmetry and geometric shapes which bring a more modern take on the renaissance style. Presenting styles in a way our eyes aren't accustomed to viewing them is something that intrigues me." - Jason Seife

ABOUT Jason Seife:
Jason Seife is a Miami based artist who's work involves the process of merging and reinventing his favorite eras in Art History. Referencing some of his favorite baroque paintings and making them new again through mediums and techniques that were not yet discovered or utilized in the 16th century. He exposes the contrasts of Realism and Impressionism by merging tightly rendered images with impasto strokes and textures. Sometimes exposing the under painting through the peeling of layers in his work, showing not only a "Finished Product" but the process in which a painting comes to life. He believes, like all humans, a body of work has more to it than what is shown on its outer layer. He aims to expose that as opposed to hiding it.
