John Craig Painter
John Craig is a recent transplant from South Jersey where, “after concluding a screamingly dull career in the highly disciplined and regulated world of finance,” he explained, ” I found painting and broke free.”
“I’m untrained, undisciplined, and have no plan. I work in acrylic and oil, applied with brushes, putty knives, and sometimes a strong right arm.
These are my tools for exploring the range of emotion in abstract painting. My style is crude and improvisational, entirely lacking in subtlety. Don’t look for deep thought. It’s simple, unfiltered, and occasionally startling.
