    NOTE:
    The colorful, whimsical and exquisitely crafted abstractions of New Jersey-born painter, Andrew Masullo, are generally rather intimate in scale, owing to the artist's favorite working method. As he revealed in a 2006 interview at Feature, Inc. gallery in New York: "I sit on the floor when I paint. The paintings either sit on my lap or are propped in front of me, leaning against a cardboard box or something else leanable..."

    "I've always considered preplanning the kiss of death. The same goes for trying to "finish" a painting. Each has its own internal clock and I've got no sway with any of them as to when they're done. When working, I may have an idea of what to do next, but I rarely know if that idea is going to be "the next big thing" or a big fat setback. That's OK, because setbacks, along with worry, doubt, and General Chaos are all valuable tools."

    Masullo is a 2011 recipient of the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.
