This amazing, colorful, and brilliant original oil paintings book is an extensive collection of nearly every oil and acrylic painting that this master artist has completed during his painting career as of yet. Covering many styles such as abstraction, surrealism, and figurative work, this artist has touched on key ideas and facets intertwined with various styles and time periods of art. His paintings are unique to his own style, and unique in themselves, although he draws inspiration from abstract expressionism, surrealism, and cubism at times. It is a ton of work, all compressed into a single comprehensive visual display. There are over 160 examples of this original abstract artist's oil paintings in this book. Many are pure abstraction, some use form and shape as subject, while others may be based on representational subject matter. The use of color is wildly dramatic sometimes, yet is always presented in a balanced fashion. Over the course of two decades, this artist pursued oil painting with the highest degree of interest and involvement. Some of the newer pieces are in the front of the book. All of the old pieces are also in this book, as well as many early pieces which have never yet been published anywhere. At one point, the artist developed a unique style for creating his paintings called Systemic Hard Edge Abstraction. He approached the design of each painting with a design method that he considered in an almost scientific way. The artist kept a running list of shape combinations that he later translated into oil paintings, thus creating an abstraction that utilized the best of his drawings over a period of time. The forms and designs of these pieces involve the judicious juxtaposition of forms, shapes, and patterns to create a significant level of variety stemming from a keen interest in drawing and design.
