Split is kind of a Coffee House painting. I love coffee, who doesn't..? Well in this painting I chose to reflect all colors onto each other in a very obvious way. Not always will I be so direct and bold to allow no interpretation. This painting is very forward, it is exactly what is it without any hidden agenda.
I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
