Selected Smaller Painterly Abstractions

“Komarin approaches smaller paintings as painting LARGE on a smaller scale. Working with a large brush, most often holding the canvas in hand, Komarin reacts to the sweep of the brush, the intuitive mark, the accidental drip, the swoosh and woosh of the paint moving in all directions. Dipping fingers onto the canvas, finger painting at times, drawing with crayon and charcoal  as needed, working faster than the brain can process, Komarin willfully gets lost in the painting. Putting the brush down, he steps away – allowing the painting to breathe – to be on its own. Smaller painterly abstractions can bring carefree moments.”

Jon Hamilton, London

“I get very alive and carefree painterly moments almost outside my control when working smaller formats. One can get around the canvas very quickly.”

“Komarin embraces the philosophy that intention is but a small fragment of our consciousness, that painting should be more about experience than a statement of intent.”
