Over the years, most of Jeffrey’s work was based on creating surreal portraits inspired by icons of pop culture. Influenced by the work of Matisse, Van Gogh and other post-impressionist artists, he has used a plethora of brilliant pure colors to create simplified structures of form in a ‘dream like’ manner. His familiar aesthetic images are primarily created by building layer upon layer of acrylic paint.
Moving to Hoboken, NJ in 2002, played an extremely influential part on Jeffrey’s most recent work. Inspired by the scenic view of the NYC skyline from across the Hudson River, he explored photography at sunset and sunrise. His paintings, referencing his photographs and his own personal vision, are created using high contrast acrylic paints and bold geometric representations of his environment. The natural light contrast on the stark and industrial sides of buildings creates a dramatic effect depicted in his choice of intense colors and use of abstract organic shapes.
