Artist Craig Rouse paints abstract intersections of architecture and mid-century modern design. He creates strong images of geometric structures in a hard-edged fashion influenced by his graphic design background spanning 30 years. Craig flourishes in applying techniques of digital art to the canvas. “I retain some brushstrokes in my work as I don't want it to be absolutely perfect,” says Craig. He maintains organic brushwork between his precise process of color-blocked edges. Working in a shared studio at West Arts District in Lakewood Colorado, he absorbs and draws inspiration from the ever-changing energies of his fellow creators. Partnered with a fine artist, Craig’s artistic practice is a constant exchange of creative ideas. Outside artistic territory, he takes delight in playing volleyball and walking their studio dog, Riley.
