Abstract paintings




The longest continuation of work for Andrew Agutos has been abstraction. What started over 10 years ago as camouflage-like, hard-edge abstraction in pop, fashionable colors has expanded to a more free-flowing, gestural practice where multiple mark-making techniques are intertwined with structures being tangled, distorted, refined, connected or blocked. Parallel to the phenomenon of synesthesia where sounds are seen as color, every mark and color interaction convey moods and emotional tonesβ€”including love, desire and detachment, sarcasm and many times humor.
