Shawn McNulty’s paintings explore the relationship between man-made structures and the natural world; the idea of recognizable shapes and structures living within irrational thoughts and emotions. The artist applies many layers of acrylic and pumice to the canvas using unorthodox methods such as a shoe palette knife (with his foot), knives, brooms, and almost anything that is not a brush. McNulty, now a mid-career artist, has moved away from his signature style geometric abstractions into an arena of organic forms and complex compositions. McNulty's paintings can be found in notable collections including President Bill Clinton, Peyton Manning, US Bank Stadium, Emerson, UBS Financial, Bellagio Hotel, Paramount, and General Mills.
