This piece is part of a series of small paintings based on pattern, repetition, and balance. I played with dark vs. light and subtle changes in tone. These paintings are built up with multiple layers of paint and then scrapped and sanded to reveal what lies beneath the surface.

Getting to Know Gary J.

Gary’s rich abstract paintings are most often inspired by the texture of an aged floor or the surface of an old wall. “I've worked in the Quality Department of a few manufacturing plants,” says Gary, “And the floors of these places have wonderful patinas and compositions from layers of paint and tape that have been scratched or worn down over many years.” Although Gary’s artworks are non-representational, every composition has a story or theme that develops during his creative process. Each splash and scrape of paint is representative of a reflective investigation of Gary’s artistic self.
