can you talk about your process?
Do you have any progress shots?

I am intrigued. Especially the Dancers.

This is great. Amazing work.

Whoa, as always VERY impressive.

Aboriginalsma is great! I have heard that every now and again one will walk through the city. It must be very surreal for each party, the "mainstream" person viewing the indigenous, and the Indingenous viewing the city.

Is that an ode to Dahli in the first dancer piece, passagesma?

As always thanks for your awesome post Reinier!

Thanks everyone. Kenny i'm gonna dig up some process shots soon. But basically a lot of these started with no end result in mind... just painting for the sake of discovering and seeing what happens when instinct is allowed to play. The dancers come in after spending a month or two witnessing an improv dance class at New World School of the Arts here in Miami. The improv class was inspiring because I couldn't believe how many interesting compositions and shapes were happening right in front of me... also the idea of being in touch with your body and its range of expression is something I'm interested in and I'm devoted to discovering the potentialities embedded within. For a while I was doing just abstract work and had abandoned the figures but now it's time to find the balance. Nicholas: Dali helped me open my mind about the possibilities of imaginative thinking coupled with advanced craftsmanship. The ode was not intentional but probably subconscious. Enjoy the process you guys. Back to play!
