Artist Statement     

Addison Vincent – Visual Artist

 

I create pop style art, heavily influenced by Neo Expressionism and Pop Surrealism.  My works tend to focus on what I call, “the nature of things”, the musings of the human condition.  My works generally start as a single, broad thought, which I let manifest while I create organically, letting the thoughts and emotions guide my hand.  The theme of my work usually reveals itself as I near the end of the process, showing me what my subconscious mind was focused on.

     I mainly work in acrylic paints and mixed media.  The versatility of acrylic paint and the use of technology to blend photography, digital photo manipulation, and paint gives me the flexibility to create art in an unconventional way. 

My greatest satisfaction comes from experimentation with mediums and unconventional tools which gives me the freedom to explore with different techniques to produce a unique look to my work.  The use of acrylic paints, water, and tools such as a hair dryer, give me the ability to control chaos.

About the Artist

 Addison Vincent is a freelance artist from Lower Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He studied art history and business administration at the University of Hartford, and began his art career shortly after graduating with honors in Visual Communications from Gibbs School (Sanford-Brown) in 1999.  He worked as a commercial graphic designer for a few years, further developing his skills in design and various artistic methods, before making the decision to follow his true passion of fine art.

      Having also been involved in the design and execution of several theater sets, Addison’s chosen media can range greatly.  The media in his work ranges from photography, digital manipulation, and mixed media, to more classical art methods such as acrylic and oil painting.  Addison pushes viewers to step outside of the normal confines of what defines fine art and design by discarding the mundane and setting new guidelines, thereby opening people to new types of visual stimulation.

     Addison has curated many successful group and solo exhibits at Villager’s PAC in Somerset, NJ; Artworks Trenton in Trenton, NJ; Straube Center in Pennington, NJ; Munich RE, in Plainsboro, NJ; Capital Health Medical Center in Hopewell, NJ; and the Historic Roebling WireWorks building in Trenton, NJ; as well as local art festivals around NJ, and PA.       

     Addison founded Allegory Lab Art Collective with three other artists, (Bobby BatesMelody SacconeJohn Anthony Saccone) in March of 2013, and since has shown with the collective in various venues around the Tri State area.

     Addison is the Exhibition Coordinator at Artworks Trenton, in Trenton NJ, where he guides artists through the exhibition process and curates shows.

     Addison has completed many works on a commission basis for both private parties and businesses, stage productions, short stories, album covers, while presenting his original works in several shows at Trenton, NJ’s Artworks Gallery; The Galleries at the Straube Center in Pennington, NJ; Veridian Gallery in Pennington, NJ; Prince St. Gallery in NYC; Underground Arts in Philadelphia, PA; Sales Gispellie in Philadelphia, PA; Hamilton St. Gallery in Bound Brook, NJ; The Gallery at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, NJ; The Gallery at Plainsboro Library, Plainsboro, NJ; Lakefront Gallery at RWJ University Medical Center in Hamilton, NJ; The Investors Bank Gallery at Capital Health – Hopewell, NJ; Hopewell Valley Vineyards, Pennington, NJ; and the Raven Gallery and Boutique in Jersey City, NJ;  as well as various art shows and fairs in the Tri State area.
