I like your artwork very much to begin with. And of course I would like to see it „in the flesh“. In these small dimensions there isn’t much more to be seen than texture. But even then it has an atmosphere of seriousness and that’s what I like.

Hi Wrenn, its obviously very hard to see the textures in this piece, but there's something about it which eminates a very whole feeling. it reminds me of Severini, but also of Pollack, but at the same time it hits the nail on the head of todays mad urbanism. Bravo.
