Did I never mention that this causes me to recall the work of Moshe Kupferman - one of my favorite artists?

It's uniquely your own mark but threads in snippets of a common visual dialect I've seen in his work.

A perpetual favorite!

hmmm...and where did this study lead?
i ...it feels like a one or no..3 level emotion...but i see...i..i wish i knew where it lead? can you say? it is like a tooth pulled out for a work but then is left alone. such morhine like pain is the act-and then..what?

This one, like 'graze' is a sketch painting exploring an idea I would like to do on a much larger scale sometime.

The theme of self-harm in your work is very powerful.
From other's comments I am unsure whether you intended it or not, but what I see in your work is emancipation through pain.
It's great to see such emotive art without it being pretentious or saying too much.
Love it.

It is indeed very much intentional...but yes, I don't make it obvious, I prefer ambiguity.
I think (mostly, perhaps not in all cases) the only people who are going to really ';pick-up' on where I am going with the works concerning self-harm are those that do it/have done it, or those close to those who do.

Thank you so much for your comment...means a lot (always) for my work to be recognised in such a way as your comment reflects...much appreciated!
Thank you.

In its simplicity lives motion that makes it more real to an eye then any study of nature.

I am very fond of its sublimity.

I love the way the clusters to the right break the verticals. Behind them, I can sort of see a circle of negative space. These things combined with the horizon-like bisection give me the impression of a sunset seascape. Through reeds in the foreground? I dunno. Just the way I see it. But it's beautiful either way.
