"All my work is dependent on form, color,
and composition. I believe the most complex emotions can be evoked from
the simplest of forms. My style explores the relationship between man-made
structures and the natural world; the idea of recognizable shapes and
structures living within irrational thoughts and emotions. I begin an
abstract painting very spontaneously and become more detailed as the
composition starts to show itself. Non
Objective Abstract Art is difficult
to fathom, and this keeps the viewer interested. As an artist, I am
intrigued by this idea. I believe how the viewer interprets the piece
becomes the reality for that person. I would be reluctant to interject
"Shawn McNulty has perhaps the most innovative
art in the show, painting in oils with an unrivaled sense of color and
shape. His abstract paintings illustrate how the effective use of simple
symbiotic patterns can be just as gripping as traditional portraits."

at Abstract Paintings & Contemporary Art: When
looking at a piece of art, we are inclined to seek out familiar shapes
and objects. There are no such literal characters in non objective abstract
art. Hopefully, you find aspects of the work intriguing in the form,
color, or composition. You might see something that reminds you of a
familiar tangible object. You might like an abstract painting a lot,
but not know exactly why. In time, you will have the same feelings for
the work because you can't quite figure it out what keeps you interested.
You will see new and different things years from your first viewing.
Representational art is also very effective when done properly. The
problem is when the subject matter is cliche or the technique is too
derivative and commonplace. In these situations, we look at a painting
for two minutes and never need to see it again.
