September Featured Artist: Bryan Bolosan

Featured Artist Bryan Bolosan

Artist Statement

Perception versus reality. These are life’s principle questions that I seek to explore and answer in my art. Capturing a fleeting thought and or inner emotion and painting them on canvas for the viewer to step-back, reflect, and find within themselves either the answers to their own questions or to stir an emotion they have yet to discover. As an artist, I work in many mediums, from watercolors to oils, but its acrylic with its bright colors and subtle hues that allows me to achieve the emotion I seek to express. Using only three to four colors at a time, I am able to alter the hues to create greater ranges of depth and dimension. The result is a quiet and impactful rhythm that ranges from a gentle heartbeat to a powerful thunderstorm. Accompany me on my journey of exploring life’s mysteries and conflicts and perhaps together we’ll find the answers all seek.

Featured Artist – Bryan Bolosan
