I created this painting with a few things in mind. One was to create a piece that possessed qualities that allowed it to appear alive. Another was to take my own spin of the Kasimir Malevich “Black Square” or my version of a Rothko painting. Lastly I wanted to create a piece of art that I would empty my bank account for. Art is a like sport to me. I want to compare my work against the greats. I went into creating this painting to simply destroy. I believe I did that. I was a blast pushing myself creatively like this.
