I’ve always been drawn to art that’s viscerally painted. Van Gogh, Picasso, Pollock, and Hoffman were some of the brut originalists hanging in museums by the time I was a kid visiting. I would get up close to their work, eyeballs to canvas, and micro-relish their strokes. Later Basquiat, Haring, and Freud brought brut to further original levels.
Art is a lasting pleasure.
“To me your work is unprecedented. It is so fresh and vibrant and unique.”
