"I get the sense that people are afraid when they see an abstract, so I wanted to blend elements of recognizable landmarks and poetry to pull in the heart of the viewer. These pieces are what it would look like if an abstract-expressionist from the 1950's were alive today and became fascinated with graffiti and street art. These landscapes are the result. Words scrawled everywhere, drips and stains everywhere. I just dig the panoramic view from afar, the gestures are alive, and when I move up close to them and read the little words, "It was written in the stars." - Gregory Siff
