OLIVER VERNON ART

Based in Brooklyn, New York-bred artist Oliver Vernon has cultivated a style which conveys movement, texture and shape, with elements of Dali-esque landscape coloration and post-modern action painting.  His body of work has matured, becoming sharper since earlier pieces such as 2005’s “Requiem for a Dream,” which sets a whirlwind of patterns (reminiscent of 70’s wallpaper or your grandmother’s couch) cascading in all directions in front of a Southwestern landscape and billowing, columnar clouds. Later works, like 2010’s “Grapple,” introduce more vivid color combinations and geometric interplay over a darker backdrop (providing striking, engaging contrast) while remaining consistent with the tried and true layering which gives Vernon’s work its distinct and powerful appeal.
