In the 80's he went through abstract elements of painting in his work which is said to be due to his reaction of the Neo-Expressionist of the time.

What is Gestural?

What is Gestural?

Gestural is a term which describes painting with freely sweeping brush strokes. The main goal of gestural art was to allow the artist to physically portray emotional impulses. Viewers were thought to understand inner artistic thoughts revealed through the varied, yet expressive paint marks.
