My Abstract Past

For Inna, 2011, acrylic on canvas, 30 x 30 inches
I have been contemplating on going back to working abstractly. From time to time I come across beautiful gestural paintings and it makes me reminisce of my short abstract period. This painting is the outcome of a commission done for a boutique opening in the lower east side of Manhattan. In this painting my influences of Rothko and Frankenthaler scream loudly, and I hope it doesn't look like a terrible knock off. I respect both painters greatly because of their use of color, light, atmospheric effects, and because of their landscape qualities. Let's hope MISSiNNA likes having this piece hanging on their wall amongst designer clothes.
