V G’s graphic abstract paintings are buoyant and optimistic. His style crosses the decades, bringing together the characteristics of a 1950’s graphic advertisement with a 1980’s sense of color and pop. The combination of intelligent color theory and negative space creates a fun interplay of shapes, which draws the eye around the canvas in a somewhat random fashion. The varying sizes of the same shape creates depth, making portions of the canvas feel close while others seem distant. The great modern abstract artists, such as Mark Rothko, Frank Stella, and Vasily Kandinsky inspire V G.
