This painting says one thing. I am shit hot as an abstract painter. That’s the subject. And in doing so I had to take my ego out of the box and wave it around. In contemporary society that’s not considered polite. But please remember I didn’t paint this for anyone but myself. And I loathe contemporary society.

  • This is an abstract painting that is very intense, masterful and ultimately exquisitely beautiful.
  • A very large painting that is packed full of hidden gems. The more you look at it in real life the more you understand I have achieved something very few artists ever even approach – a masterpiece.
  • This painting is so against the grain for contemporary thought. We shun ego. Which I believe has led to such a low point in art.
