Born in Los Angeles, USA, 1965

The abstract paintings by Jeff Kowatch resonate with energy and do not resemble any others. The artist works with oil paint on linen, and apllies the intensive physical technique of layering and scraping. He plays delicately with colours and blurriness, taking the viewer into the unknown. Jeff completed a series of works inspired by Homer's Iliad, the story of Don Quixote and Melville's novel Moby Dick. The combination of the three led him to the collection of his very own “ Belgian Odyssey”.
