Abstract: In my work I have tried to combine different movements in art history to arrive at original art work. I do not think anything is new, only fresh. Fresh ideas can come by combining old ideas. Art history can play an important role in giving the painter a source of ideas from which he can choose. A person can take two or more movements in art and combine them and arrive at something that is fresh. I believe that it is good for a painter to work outside of the main stream of painting. My major influences have been Primitive Painting. Non-objective painting has not influenced me very much because I want to create a mood. I can only do this by using recognizable subject matter.
