Art Statement | The Evolution of Style
In order to develop a signature approach to painting and photography, Conway-Hyde studied and practised various methods of creation. Up until 1985, he took a technical and figurative approach, studying life drawing and the use of watercolours. He then began an examination of art historical movements from 1985 through 1991. He developed an understanding of contrast and reflection through the use of abstraction in modern art as well as analyzing the conversations of noted Abstract Expressionists and Pop artists such as Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons for their expressive and emotional styles.
