Jay Petrow began painting in an abstract expressionist style in order to connect with and express his experience fathering an autistic child. He says, “The entire body of work approximates a place that I inhabit physically and psychologically. My goal in painting is to recreate on canvas what I am experiencing inside, from high states of agitation and angst to feelings of calm. ” Jay incorporates vibrant colors and layers textures on the canvas as he strives to reconstruct a path through his emotional world producing areas of high kinetic energy and serenity on the canvas.
