Even though I enjoy the physical motion of painting on large canvases, working on a series of smaller scale works can have its own challenges and rewards. I love the contrasts of color in this piece with the boldness of purple and blue against the pureness of white and muted yellow. The light application of orange captures the eye while marks of charcoal keep the viewer engaged. This painting has the impact of a larger piece, just in a much smaller size.

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.
