OK. So since his work's been seen at art auctions, I guess he's no discovery to the rest of the world. But I've never seen his work before, and I'm hoping one or two of you haven't, either. So here's a couple of paintings.
I like the excessive paint application, the colour and combination of form and line. It's like a beefed up Cy Twombly from the Autumn Series. Obviously about paint but so much in a landscape vein.
The title link leads only to the artnet site listing artworks for sale. It was difficult finding his gallery, as the named galleries don't list him as a represented artist. MMMMM! Sounds familiar...an artist who's this good and no obvious representation....... or getting the run around from his/her gallery.
Let me know if you know his gallery or like his work.
