Earlier Contemporary

From the Artist:

“My contemporary work was actually born out of a period of abstraction from my college days. After graduation, I set aside the abstraction for several years to concentrate on my tighter painting style. But over time, the tedious process of rendering so much detail left me wanting to play around again with more energetic techniques.

My earliest contemporary pieces were nearly abstract, and I mostly kept them to myself. Over the course of time, these paintings eventually found their way to the public, and I discovered there was an appreciation for them. As I continued to play, for lack of a better term, they tightened up a bit to eventually become what you see above.  While this approach is secondary to my more realistic paintings, it’s always fun to investigate other styles and techniques, and the experimentation informs my primary work in numerous ways.”
