Worlds Apart

These images share certain aspects. Each is predominantly composed of a secondary color; orange, green or purple. The backgrounds are done in a painterly manner using digital brushes that simulate broad strokes on rough surfaces with some spray painted effects. In all of them, above the backgrounds, are small abstract objects, some geometric and some more organic in shape. Most of the objects are black, standing out boldly against the more diffuse backgrounds. Each composition is intended to create its own separate world of space and relationships. They were all created in Procreate app for iPad using an Apple pencil.

  1. The combination of the painterly backgrounds and the sharp foreground shapes is very striking. And as always, your colour combinations are luminous. Just beautiful, Jeff.

    1. Thank you, Shari. It is always immensely humbling and encouraging to have your compliments. So glad you enjoyed seeing these abstracts. Good luck with your show. All of the artists look very exciting and really accomplished. Wish I could see it live. Maybe next year… Thanks again for writing.
