Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“In my new works, I carefully set up a reality/illusion dynamic addressing the shifting of the Picture Plane.”

Jeff Pullen was born in New York City 1948.

Piece influenced by faded painted ads on walls worn down over time.

New York City has been the place where he has spent his entire career living and working.

Studying for his BFA and MFA in Painting at Pratt Institute Pullen was fortunate to work under artists Ernest Briggs, Edward Dugmore and George McNeil.

In this new series, I paint my imagery on constructions of wood, plexi-glass, louver doors, car-hoods, etc., forming a pictorial/sculptural continuum.

He began exhibiting almost immediately after graduation, signing his first gallery contract in 1977 with the Neill Gallery in Soho, where he spent four years.

A return to my early roots in abstraction, these new works are compositions of form, color and movement based both in nature as well as inspired by man-made cultural influences including neon, reflections, faded walls and billboards, shadows and light on walls.

In the succeeding forty years Pullen worked with many galleries throughout the country and abroad highlighted by a 20+ year representation with Adamar Fine Arts, in Miami.

Influenced by reflections of multiple signs in street.

My new series of abstract paintings began in mid-2017 and evolved over time.

Inspired by torn subway ads revealing black under surface.

Pullen has enjoyed over fifty solo exhibits and numerous group shows.

Describe your image

Inspired by torn subway ads revealing black under surface.

His new series of abstract paintings began in mid-2017 and evolved over time.

Inspired by and a salute to Jackson Pollock's painting "Lavender Mist".

These works were not only influenced by but were a radical departure from my long-time painting on construction series.

Inspired by multiple reflections at twilight.

My new works are compositions of form, color and movement.

Influenced by torn and worn billboards revealing different ads at different levels.
