Craig Mooney | Seaport | Oil | 44" X 44" | $8500

Artist Craig Mooney very rarely paints from a photograph. Instead, each canvas blends many beloved places and scenes he has "collected" in his memory over the years.  

 

“I try to capture a ‘moment in time’ which evolves into works more about symbolism. The sea and land, the sailboats in the distance, these are more metaphors for a more in-depth dialogue with the subject,” explains Mooney. “This way, the paintings can be entered by anyone.”

“They are places only I have been. They are the epitome of New England’s perfection. They are a piece and a part of each beach, mountain, or ocean I have visited. It is where I am at peace, but in the end, it is a reminder of wherever you find happiness,” says artist Craig Mooney.

 

 

All the places Mooney has called home have inspired him: his native New York, the mountains and farms near his studio in Stowe, Vermont, and the beaches of Maine and Massachusetts. In all his work, he always seeks a sense of atmosphere.

Mooney’s new works include a variety of newer themes as well as older ones. The romantic themes of weather and storms are familiar to the 18th—and 19th-century seascape painters who have always influenced his work, but there is more. 

Mooney's Solo Summer Show runs through Monday, July 1. Maine Art Hill's Gallery at the Grand is at 1 Chase Hill Road and is open from 10 AM to 6 PM daily. FMI visit https://maine-art.com/, call 207-967-2803 or email info@maine-art.com
