Artist Statement of these six pieces for Life And Love:
“This exhibition is about companionship. This year I made the biggest step of my life in getting married. This step in my life reminds me of how two people can balance each other and bring out the best in one and other. Often I imagine setting’s in which creatures co exist that wouldn’t likely do so. I have been inspired by the animals that actually live and work together. Whether it’s playing together or hunting food.
In this exhibition, I wanted to take the smallest of creatures who contain an enormous amount of strength and compassion. They give guidance, loyalty and focus for their companions. These paintings are a tribute to my wife.”
Graham Curran grew up in the South Bay, a small beach community south of Los Angeles. Growing up, Graham spent most of his time being outdoors and at the beach. Graham attended CSU Long Beach, where he graduated in 2010 with a degree in Illustration.
The feeling of being in the ocean plays the biggest part in Graham’s work. While drifting alone, Graham’s imagination would run wild. The endless possibilities of what could be swimming underneath him is a feeling he remembers vividly; and inspires most of his work to date. The possibility of unknown world’s, and our inherited connection to nature are themes often portrayed in his work.
Graham’s work can be seen primarily in galleries throughout Los Angeles.
