Really love the work of John Reuss, it reminds me of the twisted disfigured paintings of Francis Bacon.
“My work is characterized by contrasts - the juxtaposition of opposites on several levels - which is recognized throughout my paintings. Fine detail, drawn lines and meticulously painted shapes clash with bold brushstrokes, spatters and blurred contours. Soft organic shapes and multifaceted figures meet hard, calculated geometric abstractions. “
