Days to Night
Michael Filan

Days To Night is a solo presentation by the NYC-based artist Mike Filan. Over the years, Filan’s painting process has become brushless. The gestures, drips, and splashes that unite his work have become increasingly more intricate over time and address viewers in a language that is private, intense, and consistently self-referential. Within the context of abstraction, Filan is constantly inventing a new vocabulary that employs gesture, form, and notation. The intensity of the color is used as a mystical guide that leads him through the creation process. Spatial planes are created on the painting’s surface that offer resting points for viewers to pause before further embarking on a journey of exploration.
