Craig Cossey – Realism Art Exhibition

2014 Realism Art Exhibition – MyArtContest.com

Craig Cossey – Eaton Rapids, MI

Craig Cossey paints ordinary items with great detail and intensity.  His paintings are layered with intricate colorful abstracts designed to deepen and define even the smallest element.  Cossey reveals the aging of objects with textures that are vivid and complex; thereby, allowing us the opportunity to slow down and value the simple beauty that life and change provides.

“I find myself intently studying every portion in every painting, they draw me in with sheer amazement!”  – gallery attendee

Each painting takes Craig several months to complete.  His tools are simple, a #2 pencil and acrylic paint!  His paintings are often mistaken for digitally altered photos, which they are not.

“Often at openings I am questioned about the lifelike detail in the metals, wood or subject matter;   they are defined by both knowledge and technique slowly developed from many years of painting.”  – Craig Cossey
