Craig Moran: Spaced Out
February 9–May 29, 2018
Opening reception: March 1, 6–8pm
Craig Moran is a DC-based painter known for his boldly patterned canvases. His newest body of work is a whirl-wind of exuberant colors and energetic shapes. Unlike many abstract painters who work directly on the canvas to create tension between color and shape, Moran employs a unique process of collage and computer manipulation to create his images. Using a variety of source material such as street art, photographs, his old paintings, decorative papers, and nature books, Moran cuts out shapes and arranges them at random to create new images and then photographs the results. The photographed assemblages are rearranged further with image editing software. Moran then translates the result into painting. The final abstractions evoke elements of the natural world and portraiture in a dynamic flattened space which captivates the eye and the imagination.
