I have painted continuously for the last 35 years in a wide variety of styles and mediums. My primary focus has been abstract work of a constructivist nature, exploring color, symmetries and spatial illusion.
When I paint, the medium is the message; the form is just the container for the process. The individual paintings, though appearing precious, become less important than the painting that is my current focus; what I think of as the “painting performance.” That performance has a seductiveness that keeps me coming back for more.
I am currently focused on manipulating acrylic, inks, watercolor, and spray techniques to explore color, patterns, texture, and surfaces. I am also experimenting with scale and modular paintings. — John T. Fallon III
