Jack Morefield

Jack Morefield
Boston based painter Jack Morefield paints large scale acrylic paintings, usually portraits and often of contemporary music, pop culture or even literary figures, in which the image is composed of swirling arrangements of colored strands.

These strands, or bands if you prefer, are at times more or less defined; Morefield works with their edges as part of the textural differences by which he composes the paintings.

In addition to his website, you can find a selection of his work on his deviantART gallery.

(Note: some images should be considered NSFW.)
