We've had a crush on Craig Mooney's large and light-filled paintings for quite a while so it was a very happy day here at the gallery when we hung his gorgeous work on our gallery walls.  We just can't seem to drag our eyes away from his magical skies, verdant lands and shimmery waterways.  And, although Craig is widely recognized as a representational painter, we're drawn to the abstract elements in his work, especially in his urban-set paintings which feel a little mysterious but always familiar.  We're pulled to the dreamy, atmospheric qualities of his work and of course, his soft-as-air palette that makes the paintings simply sing.

Craig was born and raised in the heart of midtown Manhattan (NY) and his roots in art go back to his youth. His father, an amateur artist, taught him how to create oil paintings from discarded art supplies found on city streets. To Mooney, the city was an endless source of inspiration from an early age. Even though Craig took art classes in both in high school and college, he regards this early exposure as the truest form of training he ever received.

After a brief career in the film industry, the artist moved from New York in the mid-nineties to the rural Northeast where the open and bucolic countryside settings allow Craig endless new sources of inspiration.  Lucky us!
