my art is about nothing more than looking good. catching eyes. grabbing attention. i don't have a manifesto, i don't have an agenda, i don't have a string of long, bland, conceptual-sounding words that make no sense and alienate the average person. i may not particularly like the average person, but i'd rather try to communicate an idea to them rather than bore them. influences/favourite artists: vincent van gogh, patrick caulfield, andy warhol, edward hopper, chiho aoshima, frank auerbach, richard estes, alphonse mucha, edvard munch, mark rothko. about this gallery: all images are computer-generated. this is partly due to not having access to a scanner (i have a few paintings i'd really like to go on here) and partly due to me not having painted much lately. this way it's less messy, quicker, etc. but i do kinda miss the hands-on thing. i will paint again one day for sure, i just have to recover from my abysmal college experiences first. at the moment, art is something i do using a computer, when i have nothing better to do, and something very vague to express. so, this is really an exhibition of boredom. please look around, get lost, and think something. anything. please scribble in the guestbook with any thoughts, ideas, criticisms, and death threats. please send all the pictures to your friends as e-cards. and more importantly, please enjoy...
