Light of the Caribbean Artist
Born in 1955 on Long Island, Mr. Fearron began seriously painting in 2003, cultivating his Caribbean heritage and love for bold use of color. His technique applies color and textural elements to canvas using twigs, leaves, metal scraps, toothpick, hairpins and writing implements in lieu of brushes.
The Birth of Urban Futurizm highlights works that offer glimpses of the common man in a world diminished by the digital age, witnessing the decline of human ethics, and struggling along with nature to be seen against the chaos. Works in this series combine acrylic paint, pen and ink, spray paint and marker applies as layers of language and mathematical symbols.
My view is my response towards reality – past, present, future, expressed in abstract, improvisational form with vivid colors, strands of language and formulaic computations; all capturing my motivations, my thinking, and the flow of my life. This art represents feelings that I've hidden, some of which are built up inside of me; and feelings I want to shout to the heavens and the universe. I am always learning new things; striving to develop myself from the physical and spiritual towards the future. I am a part of my family and all of my loved ones. These paintings and designs represent an expression of my humanity as a man. The act of painting allows me to learn something from what and who I have become. I rarely use brushes or brush strokes and prefer working with straight edges, wood objects, pens, market, pencil, oil stick, acrylic, spray paint, metal or plastic edges and shapes as a means to apply and move paint onto the canvas and other objects.
