I really responded to his work. I love his mark and his exploration of figure. I love the idea of an ambiguous figure, one that is profoundly imperfect. I was really drawn to his work because I think it reflects my own. The subject matter is different but the visual effect of his work is what I am going for. He shows imperfections in a really astounding way and I love the shock factor his pieces have. His work is ugly and grotesque but it is engaging and personal. I would like my work to do the same. I love the underlying dichotomy of his work as well. Contrast is intriguing and I would like to explore the dichotomous relationships in my work.
