My work attracts people who are looking for authenticity, every painting captures a moment in time, frozen forever on the canvas.

Each work is made using a sledgehammer to cause an explosion with paint; expanding and accenting the infinite variety of forms and colors present in nature. Modern color formation in pink, black, blue, and white.

I raise the Sledgehammer over my head and strike down… BANG!
Colors race and reach outward from the center, splashes twist across each composition crashing onto the canvas;like skipping pebbles on a pond.

Often times the paint gets angry before settling; it bubbles and mixes in strange ways, other times the dried paint cracks like the floor of a desert adding a new level of weirdness to the aftermath.

My paintings are a struggle; each one a balancing act between color, shape, line, surface, space, abstraction and object.

Every time you look at one of my works you will notice something; a small nuance or intricacy that you did not see before, it will brighten up your day and become an endless source of inspiration for your life.

I want for you to see a starting point and perhaps get momentarily lost; I hope that you will dream.

« I hope you will see a starting point and maybe get a bit lost: I hope that you will dream. » Emerging artist Chris Crewe compares life to a trapeze act. Always knowing that the next rung will be there, he hasn't fallen yet. The Canadian artist has been studying the use of sledgehammer as a paintbrush, replicating marks, and incorporating them into his abstract works. Crewe also makes paint markers out of plastic bottles by melting the plastic to turn the lid into a spout, often using them to draw in free-flowing gestures. His unique works are meant to 'brighten your day'.
