Kristine Moran

Just stunning abstract painting from Brooklyn based artist Kristine Moran (Toronto). Moran's lushly painted surfaces combine patches of high-voltage color with murky backgrounds of blues, browns, and grays. Her paintings, all from 2009, employ an energetic brush mark that creates an effect similar to the trace lines that occur in photographs when a camera is set on a long shutter speed at night. They contain clusters of wavy lines and mounds of color that, from far away, form loosely painted representational images, but up close fall apart into abstraction. Coming soon you can see her new pieces for the new series paintings called Protean Slip. See more;
