I began this piece with two ideas. I wanted a painting with a feeling of complete serenity and was also green.  As I worked into the layers, I began to see the multitude of imagery that appeared to ripple throughout the surface.  The title refers to a notion of those things that are just beyond the surface that we can see or hear faintly.  The whispers of the past, perhaps. The artwork is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Brandon

Brandon Moon’s abstract expressionist paintings are complex, tense, optimistic, impulsive, and psychedelic. Each piece depicts another world, or many worlds within itself. His work speaks to the complexity of society, and the overwhelming stimuli of the day to day in modern life. Living in a big city like New York can be both exciting and scary. Some days the city shines like a utopia, and other days you feel a degrading dystopian weight upon you. While many artists seek to simplify what they see and experience in the world, Brandon takes all of the information and unleashes it onto the canvas. Using a surrealist free-association technique, he takes us on a journey through his subconscious mind. Each mark leads to the next, and each painting is a continuation of the one before it. However, the work remains extremely precise and controlled, with bright colors and bold graphic shapes that are reminiscent of an 80’s street art style. The paintings change depending on the distance you view them at. They are entirely different works viewed 5 feet versus 10 feet away. Brandon approaches his art without hesitation, and in turn, he and his viewers are rewarded with discovery.
