This is a painting I made in my very first "official" studio outside my home which was tiny. I painted mostly on the floor in that space as I didn't have much room for an easel and it was more comfortable to create that way. Part of the journey of being an artist. This piece has a special place in my heart as it's a reminder that we're always "adrift" in some way, looking for that place to ultimately drop the anchor.

Getting to Know Jeffrey

Jeffrey Tover is an abstract artist based in the Bay Area who creates paintings that are colorful, multilayered, and gestural. The haphazardness of the marks in his compositions engage the viewer’s eye as it moves through every inch of the canvas. His work is greatly influenced by expressionist painters Cy Twombly, Joan Mitchell and Willem de Kooning, and shares similar gestural qualities to their work. Through his art, Jeffrey strives to achieve uniqueness in each painting; every piece takes on its own individual persona and influences his viewers in different ways.
