Commotion

Chris Gray's avatar Chris Gray Vote Code: 68449

People who like comic and pop art tend to be interested in my work. I work primarily with pen and ink on Bristol paper. I am inspired by the Tribal art of Polynesia, Central America and the Pacific Northwest, and refer to my work as abstract Tribal. When I begin a new piece, I have a few major lines as the backbone; then let the rest flow organically. I refer to it as Jazz on paper. When creating Commotion, I wanted to have a form that flowed from a center point, like lava from a volcano. While creating movement in several sections, the work is still one cohesive piece. I used autumn colors to soften and accent the hard lines and fast feel of the piece.
