McCormick, Biography +

John McCormick

John McCormick lives in Northern California and has distinguished
himself both in his earlier abstract works and his refined landscapes
and drawings. In 2001, he was given a one person exhibition at the
Triton Museum of Art, and in 2002 he was invited to be a resident artist
at The Morris Graves Foundation in Northern California.

Nature is the departure point for McCormick's paintings, drawings
and collages. He is a contemporary painter who combines elements of modernism with those of traditional painting. His art demonstrates a deep involvement with the craft of painting, the alchemy of rendering form, and the modulation of tone and hue.

His paintings, drawings, and collages are not just a documentation of nature, but rather, they are compositions that demonstrate a process of engagement and a meditation on experience.
