I love nature, even though I spend most of my time indoors painting.  I like to create works that consist of recognizable fragments and strangely familiar feelings that reveal themselves slowly over time. Something that will draw you into new worlds every time you look at the painting. The sides of this piece are a continuation of the imagery on the front. I feel this gives the painting more depth because it seems to float regardless of which angle you are viewing it from. This painting on a gallery wrapped canvas and 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.
