“Dystopia”, 36×36″ mixed media on canvas was selected by Erika Harrsch the juror of the Art League May 2019 show (see location below). It is result of abstracting human figure—male model with short poses—drawing by pouring paint with disengaged mind from a place of feeling and not thinking. I select a title for each painting after I complete the process depending on the mood it evokes (not necessarily the mood I paint in). This painting evoke a strange fear of uncertainty in me and others who looked at it—not too unfamiliar to us all these days. But also a big sense of hope.

“Fractured”, 48×36″ was selected by Lavar Munroe the juror of the Art League April 2019 show (devoted to mixed media). Inspired by the 1950’s works of Alberto Burri, Yves Klein, Lee Bontecou and their contemporaries, in this work physicality and unpredictability have introduced a new compelling energy as the painting has entered the world of objects—result of cutting and leaving openings on the canvas while revealing another surface behind.
