Wild abandon

70 x 100 cm

Oil on canvas

2021


"Wild abandon" is an expressionist creation dedicated to cutting all the chains binding me to this earth. It is a painting inspired by wildness, by instinct, and by spontaneity, all elements found in nature and reflected in my artistic practice. It is layer upon layer of brushwork and changing color, totally without guise and control. Creating this painting was like dancing, like running through a forest in the body of a child, fast, free, uninhibited.

This painting says everything about where I want my paintings to go and to grow.


"Wild abandon" is all that. Wild. Free. Alive.


As of this writing, "Wild abandon" is available in my Italy studio.


Earth angel

60 x 60 cm

Acrylic and oil on canvas

2021


"Earth angel" was a departure painting... a departure into a free flowing abstract expressionism, very intuitive and spontaneous. While all of my works are expressive, the loose brush strokes and energy in this painting convey energy and vitality. This is one of the most recent paintings in my 2021 Italy studio series, and is a symphony of earthy, alive greens and soft light filled lights. It bears my trademark movement upwards, towards the sky, towards the light, towards life. It moves in an every-changing dance on the wall where it is hung.

Painting this piece was pure joy. Exciting. Free.

Rosa selvatica

90 x 90 cm

Acrylic, oil and pastels on canvas

2021



The rose that expresses the most exquisite perfection and the most unabashed wildness. That is "Rosa selvatica", a painting made with an intense bent towards abstract expressionism.

This painting is the fruit of abandoning myself to creativity without regard for the outcome, a kind of controlled loss of control. "Rosa selvatica" is a painting made with several layers of mixed media, also including iridescent and metallic pigments in the underpainting. It is powerful, spontaneous, vivid and forceful, while also being delicate, ephemeral, seemingly transparent and veil-like.

It hovers on the wall and seems to take on a life of its own. Wild but tranquil.

It is made to be adored and revered.

At the time of this writing "Rosa selvatica" is available for collection in my Italy studio.
