For some time now I've been wanting to explore abstract painting. But the way I wanted to do it was not to leave the representational world entirely. As an ocean artist, I've painted lots of waves. Popular wave photography today often views a wave in abstracted form, light and color. My wave abstracts do a similar thing but with paint. I create an abstract first, then integrate a wave form into the abstract, allowing the abstract to come through the wave. This is a new development for me but the response has been good. We're beginning to get some of these pieces in the gallery and quite a number have sold from my Instagram feed (Ocean Art by Koniakowsky) and on Etsy. Experimentation keeps the art, and me, fresh. I don't plan to give up my passion for local impressionist landscape and my "Dreamscape" series, so keep an eye out for more new work in those genres!
