Craig Mooney's work is purposefully ambiguous. He communicates with the viewer in the space that exists between the painting and the viewer's impression of it.
Mooney uses brushes and pallet knives to build form, gesture, and color into figures that exist within the picture plane, and linger in the memory.
Mooney's work has been called dreamlike. His figures belong to something beyond photographic reality. They come from the refractive, blurred eye of the memory, of the sleeping mind. These paintings come from a reality that never existed, but is instantly recognizable.
