by Jake Baylor.
My work focuses on gestural action, abstraction over figuration. In theface of the existential void, I aim to emphasize emotion, drama, turmoil, frustration, despair, love and tenderness rather than form and function. My technique is to be free of technique. I paint in the moment, without a plan, and let my thoughts and feelings guide the brush into frantic, rapid strokes, curving and slashing across the page until the feelings subsideand the piece is complete.
