  • Description

    Lovesick
    "I want to make paintings that are totally affectless in technique, yet somehow drenched in emotion. The forms in Lovesick came from a logo design. I shifted the shapes around a bit, and it began to pull at my heartstrings. We all know the feeling – heavy, dizzy, melting."
    Julian Hooper to Ron Brownson, 30 October 2019
