Snapshots from the recesses of the mind, Eli McMullen’s paintings glow with dreamy nostalgia. Neon pops of light emerge from his dark, moody night scenes as winks from a higher consciousness, creating an almost supernatural feel. Each acrylic and gouache work draws viewers in like moths to a flame, as McMullen masterfully renders all that glimmers in the night.
McMullen is a painter based in Richmond, Virginia. He received his BFA in Painting & Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2015. His work has been exhibited at multiple venues including The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Glave Kocen Gallery, and Black Iris Gallery, all in Richmond, VA; Talon Gallery in Portland, OR, and Lump Gallery in Raleigh, NC. McMullen has also had his work published in Hi-Fructose Magazine, Richmond Magazine, and The Washington Post.
