This painting is the largest of the series thus far. It is composed of acrylic, paper, and gel medium on canvas drop cloth. I used the drop cloth as the surface because of the rough texture. It has black painted sides and is signed and ready to hang.

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.
