David Rex Joyner

I recently discovered New Orleans artist David Rex Joyner.  Joyner's mixed medias are very reminiscent of two of my favorite abstract impressionists, Willem de Kooning and Hans Hofmann.  I love how he blends nature and landscape into these wonderfully vibrant and playful abstracts.
