7 Abstract paintings by Alec Clayton

Artist’s Statement: These are abstract paintings through which I have attempted to capture the feel, but not necessarily the look, of movement of animals and people in nature, combining the gestures of abstract expressionism with patterning, and with an emphasis on color and texture.
