Crush Series Abstract Expressionism Art — Justin W John



An intimate abstract series based in hues of deep green and blue, like a deep abyss. Moments of bold saturated tones often erupt across the canvas or trickle-down like rain. 

An ongoing series and exploration into myself, my forgotten self, my lost self, hoping to reconnect within.

And we will never be alone again

Cause it doesn’t happen every day

Kinda counted on you being a friend

Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say

But I never really know where to go

So I chained myself to a friend

Cause I know it unlocks like a door

I listened to your problems 
Now listen to mine

I didn’t want to anymore

It didn’t matter what they wanted to see He thought he saw someone that looked just like me The summer memory that just never dies We worked too long and hard to give it no time He sees right through me, it’s so easy with lies 

Cracks in the road that I would try and disguise He runs his scissor at the seam in the wall He cannot break it down or else he would fall A thousand lonely stars Hiding in the cold

I don’t understand,
don’t get upset I’m not with you…

We’re swimming around,
it’s all I do

When I’m with you

‘Cause I don’t know what else I can do.

I love what you’ve done with your hair
