I started painting non-stop after a conversation with my mother on her deathbed. "Don't wait," she said. And so I didn’t.

My self-created style is called Faux Fauvism. The goal of Faux Fauvism is to pinpoint the moment in cognition when pattern recognition occurs. When Faux Fauvism is succeeding, it triggers a “cloud gazing” effect: a state in which the viewer is unable to determine whether they are projecting an image onto reality, or if reality is projecting its image onto them.

--Josh Byer
