Discussing his work Jake states, “Human vulnerability and awe in relation to the sea has interested me long before I picked up a brush to paint it. In my opinion the sea reminds us that we are not in control of the forces of nature, and linked to that reminder are the trials and tribulations of the viewer’s life. My goal is to get under the skin or behind the veil of the purely visual experience of the image. Ultimately my wish is for the viewer to engage with what lies beneath the surface within themselves.”
‘South Atlantic’ encapsulates the ambiguity and familiarity within his seascapes. Potentials of time, place and circumstance exist for the audience to arrange and re-arrange.
