Acrylic on Canvas
48 x 48 inches
The 48 x 48-inch acrylic on canvas piece Jungle Jazz is a rhythmical interplay of colors and shapes and in this case, music. At the time of painting, Alfonso applied a much looser style allowing his impulse to lead. The result lends to a more gestural, energetic look to his signature abstract style. It’s as if the beat can be felt just by looking at the way the patterns are in harmony with each other, accented by tones of blues and browns.
“I think in a time of crisis, whenever possible, immersing oneself in what makes one more optimistic is vital. It can be anything – music, poetry, Netflix, or time with family.”"
