Artist talk with Austin Furtak-Cole

- Thursday, October 25th, 6:00PM

Furtak-Cole is foremost a painter. His large pink canvases are filled with soft forms reminicent of clouds, or soft bodily tissue. He paints layers of images, sometimes beginning with the figure, before he arrives at the final image. Often the paintings serve more as a vessel to fill rather than a closed figure.

"This new work is an attempt at painting the ephemeral experience. Not to capture it, but to paint it as it is- a fleeting, un-graspable thing; to "paint invisibly."-Austin Furtak-Cole

Austin received his BFA from Stony Brook University and his MFA from Green Mountain College. His work has been shown at Brenda Taylor Gallery in New York City, Somewhere There Art, in Toronto, Canada and Parallax AF in London, England.
