Howard Hodgkin

He is a British abstract painter although he describes him self as an abstract figurative painter, critics thin of him as an abstract poet.

My interest:

I am interested on his work because he tries to represent complex situations using figurative elements in a non explicit way. The titles are an active part of the work of art.

Work of art that I find interesting:
