I was immediately drawn to Frew's astounding line quality and the expressiveness of his mark. His pieces have a very raw, intense feeling to them and I love this. I am really inspired by his line quality and I would like my own work to mimic the rawness and intensity exuded by such an expressive mark. They are intriguing, and in no way classically aesthetically pleasing. There is a great tension to his work, but also a chaotic undertone that is really intriguing. I love the interaction of his mark, because he does not approach portraiture classically, but utilizes a complex interaction of color and line to create the image as a whole. The subtleties in his work are incredible and I think my work should incorporate more detail. He also has used a huge variety of media and I would like to explore other media. His prints are incredible and so are some of his pieces on wood. The texture in his work is appalling and I would like my work to feel more densely layered texturally.
