Lee Kaloidis is an improvisational composer and, like a lyric poet, works relatively quickly and without plan. From the first mark, a painting evolves towards a destination that is the byproduct of strongly intuited relationships. When excecuted, these relationships are intended to stand, though often are sacrificed as the work shifts and struggles to become an original whole. This unfolding makes each painting, and an entire series of paintings, an historic sequence of events. [extract : about the work]

“My painting is a direct byproduct of intense involvement in improvisational music and free-verse poetic composition. It is about change and movement, balance and unity, and ultimately about natural order. What drives movement is tension. I like to think of my paintings as places where the most divergent and surprising things collide, converging at just the right time into new expressions of unity.” Lee Kaloidis

      Kaloidis is a painter who manages to continually re-invent the way he expresses himself in his works while always remaining immediately recognizable. I love the way he often combines subtle and delicate features with bold and dramatic fields and gestures.

      If only I could afford to have one of his paintings on my wall, it would brighten up the greyest English days.
      Lee has a great future before him.
      Congratulations!
