About The Work

Andrew Masullo’s non-objective paintings—he eschews the word abstract—are notable for both their intimate scale and sophisticated use of color and form. Executed in oils, their “rightness” is derived from an intuitive, yet methodical adjustment of paintings’ most basic elements. In some cases, a painting can take years to complete, yet Masullo does not attempt to hide a given painting’s history, and prior adjustments and abandoned directions are often visible in a completed work.

Masullo’s unique pictorial vocabulary of geometric and organic forms suggest potential reference points, but his paintings are ultimately about their own creation, not external influences—their meaning is immanent, rather than transcendent. Since the early 1990s, Masullo’s stated aim has been to produce paintings that have “no preconceived ideas, no personal or outside references, no pictorial imagery, no words, no numbering systems, no theories, no agendas, and no gimmicks.”
