Chris Moss’s energetic painting, Dead End, blends together an extraordinary range of textures and motifs, resulting in a compelling and cohesive whole. To create his painting, Chris used an innovative, adaptive technique called “Artistic Realization Technologies” (or A.R.T.). Using a laser pointer and working closely with a trained assistant (CATA faculty artist Pat Hogan), Chris directed every movement of the brush on the canvas. Click the video below to see A.R.T. in action.
In the series of paintings below, artists Catie Darling, David Messina, Casey Ryan, Douglas Magoon, and Isaak Demarsico combined oil pastel and watercolor paint to create bold, graphic motifs.
