“His heady mix of the unplanned, the seductive, and the outlandish crystallizes in his [] paintings. Bypassing brush and art paint in favor of squeegees, leftover household paint, and masking tape, he creates loosely sequential images that echo the sonic and visual leitmotifs of his films. In Starburst paintings, he sticks overlapping segments of masking tape to the center of an unprimed canvas, then uses a broom to spread primary red, yellow, and blue dyes over the surface. The tape is removed to reveal bright, irregular stars shining through colorful mists; the final compositions are characterized by a spontaneous, explosive radiance.”

Marina Galperina, “Harmony Korine to Exhibit Paintings at Gagosian,” Animal, 29 April 2014
