DESCRIPTION

 

 Viridian Artists, Inc. is pleased to present John Cullen's first solo exhibition at our gallery entitled  "All About Reflections" from June 11 to June 29, 2013. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Thursday June 13, 5-8pm.   

The focus of Cullen's imagery is water, presented abstractly, with flowing lines that echo the fluidity of water's movement and currents. His acrylic paintings on wood panels are not large and are described by the artist as "abstract impressionism".  Sometimes he is painting the rhythms of flowing water in such a way that narratives of movement are created and filled with the simplicity of nature abstracted. Occasionally other forms overlay the liquefied tendrils, but always the viewer is confronted with water's beautifully rhythmic journey.

Though he has worked many years and in many differing ways studying and recording the waves and currents of streams and rivers, the current selection of work encompasses selections from the last five years with a concentration on the "rhythm" series of the past two years up to the present.

Cullen feels his most inspired work comes through a sheer force of labor that ultimately fills him with a renewed sense of insight and revelation.

The artist studied at Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art, New York University and Pratt Institute, where he received a Masters Degree in Art Education in 1970. He taught art on both the secondary and college level. He has been exhibiting his paintings since 1988, receiving many awards in exhibitions throughout New York State and the Northeastern coast as well as at the Vera Beach Museum of Art, the Schweinfurth Museum and the Cooperstown Museum of Art.

We look forward to your joining us at this exciting new exhibit at Viridian Artists.
