Lot description
"Further Removed" (2012) is a stunning and celebratory painting on canvas that belongs to the most recent abstract Series by rising star, emerging American Contemporary artist Greg Minah (US, b. 1978). This is one of Minah's most complex and vibrant of his multi-layered paintings. His work is being received internationally by collectors and scholars alike for the manner in which it intersects with Graffiti, Calligraphy and Action Painting. Minah's process first involves pouring acrylic paint directly on the canvas and then spinning, tilting and turning the canvas to create abstract marks and leaving negative space. This painting measures 32 x 32 inches (81.30 x 81.30 inches) and in excellent condition.

"Further Removed" is a stunning example of Minah's painting style, applying layers of paint to create a harmonious yet intense internal dialogue, as each layer informs the artist on how the next might be applied. Minah builds many layers of color and marks one upon the other, never altering the results of the paint and is very thoughtful about the order and narrative of colors applied. The brilliance of Minah's work is that is appears completely hand-painted and controlled when it is anything but. This method is best described as a collaboration between the spontaneity of paint and the direction that the artist suggests to the medium.

Greg Minah has been widely exhibited in the U.S., U.K. and Europe and is in select prestigious Private and Corporate Collections, world-wide. The artist received his Fine Arts Degree from The University of Maryland and currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland, US.
