This is one of two paintings I made as a diptych, but I really like it on its own. The spacial quality of the piece with color fields that seem to float and collide within negative space as dark lines shoot across side to side. It brings on contemplation as the viewer takes the painting in. Abstract art is about the personal experience of what one sees opposed to the defined dialogue of a representational work. It's what I enjoy most about this type of art.

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.
