Californian artist Oliver Vernon’s chaotic paintings don’t make a lot of sense at first glance, but that’s the reason I like them: after staring at the image for a while, each person will interpret the strange shapes and colour combinations in a totally unique way. His art has previously been described by the David B Smith Gallery in Denver as a representation of the formation of the mind from thought, reason and aesthetics. He is currently exhibiting his work at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York until June 29.
