  Ask a Question


New York State of Mind is an acrylic on Canvas painting developed for the physicians of New York serving the patients during the Pandemic. It depicts the chaos that still exists – in shades of orange, black, brown and ochre, the uncertainty that is COVID-19 is the randomness of the painting, the little rays of sunshine are depicted in yellow when the hard work pays off and the smiles of grateful patients lights up when they recover and go home, the red blood and invisible sweat that is shed by everyone in the front-lines, the blue suggests that even amidst the dark realities there will be blue skies ahead.

I am interested in the role of colors and their effects on people.  This artwork has a strong color scheme and has textures that may intrigue a few.  Textures are an important component of my paintings.  I am studying the techniques utilized by different painters both current and from the past most notably Gerhardt Richter and Van Gogh.  You will find several influences of the past in my paintings but I hope to give each painting of mine a different twist that is unique to me. Techniques like acrylic pour, marks created by different brushes and instruments as simple as forks, brush handles and palette knives are widely used in my paintings.

The predominant colors in this artwork are blue in its various shades, hot pink, yellow, a touch of green and orange.  The size of the artwork is relevant for a reasonably blank wall.  If you prefer a larger size than what it is, I recommend buying a print from the site that allows for purchasing several items not just prints.
