I speak with my brush.
— George Yepes
When it comes to sheer touch that combines beautiful control over line and brushwork, yet seemingly spontaneous expression, George Yepes is among the best. His darkly romantic excess can’t help but make you think he would have been Dante Gabriel Rossetti's [1828 - 1882, London, England] equal among the Pre-Raphaelites. But these saints and sinners are hardly a throwback. Yepes’ painting has a visual density and suggestiveness that is as tantalizing to the intellect as it is arresting for the eye.
