After viewing several large exhibitions of modern art, mostly abstract art, I began seeing and photographing similar images in the real world. The main influences here are the New York school of Abstract expressionists as well as West Coast more figurative work. Artist of influence include: Rothko, Motherwell. De Kooning, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollack, Plaul Klee, Nathan Olivera, Malevich, Rodechenko, Modrian, Ed Rusha, Rufino Tamayo and others. As this series develops some of these are pure Yalom as well.
