Statement

ARTHUR MAY

Although essentially a self-taught artist, Mr. May is a trained architect and holds degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the University of Pennsylvania where he studied painting with George Rickey, and Neil Welliver. He is a fellow of the American Academy in Rome where he presented a one-man show of paintings and drawings at the completion of his fellowship. In the spring of 2009 he had a solo show at Art 101 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

 ARTIST STATEMENT

The work displays a concern for formalist issues such as: resolution, scale, balance and proportion. However they also evidence respect for other criteria. That is to say, feeling and form are not mutually exclusive. Content is derived from associations within shapes, and the illusion of space. Spatial ambiguity is sought..

This work springs from sources as diverse as:  Stuart Davis, Wayne Thiebaud, Bonnard, Balthus and Morandi.

Arthur May’s studio is located in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn at:

649 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222, suite 1L
