NEOSIMPLEXITY AND THE SOUND OF COLOR

New 2019 Paintings Completed Just As The Year Ended.

Let’s call this Volume 1, as I am already at work on Volume 2, with a deeper exploration of similar themes. In this set, itself an expansion on SIMPLEXITY from earlier last year, I express my views on Environmentalism, the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Childhood Memories, Nature’s Revenge, Death by Bandwidth, and of course, Music. Where would humanity be without it, especially now, in these dark times? Where would I be, if I were not able to paint to it? In a hospital maybe, missing one or both ears. The family next door is completely unaware that I am blissfully losing my mind, taking on today’s big issues with a loaded brush. In the relative safety of my Sony MDR-RF985RK wireless stereo headphones, despite being within farting range of North Korea’s WMDs, nobody can touch me.

All works acrylic on canvas.
