"Unart" is an accidental narrative. This work presents a moderately restrained colour palette; but an exuberant brushwork. While still remaining true to the Hitsuzendo of my work, "Unart" is a careful and considered work.

There is some discolouration to the image you are seeing here as part of the scanning process, while the work is on ecru-white paper, the discolouration is not part of the actual work.

This work comes phenomenally well-framed in white maple with a floating mounting, with white shadowbox passepartout, and museum quality UV-resistant plexiglass glazing.


I recommend this work be purchased alongside "Reactionary" as the two complement each other, and come similarly framed--with the added variation that "Reactionary" is mounted long edge perpendicular with the floor; while this work: "Unart" is mounted horizontally.

The grind and excitement of near-constant movement has given me a stormy and tense relationship to space, and to movement within that space. From walled-off Berlin, foggy Vienna, quaint Alpine villages, and myriad boxy American cities--each environment adding something subtle to my creations. I often pose the philosophical question--why would a thing need to represent another thing, if its own beauty in form should be recognized? I crave tension--seeking truth through examination of angles, trial--error, and the narrative that develops visually through the "indelibility" of contact between pen and paper.
