“Attic/Attica Blues Paintings”
Created for HATAK
By James Cullinane

Artist’s statement for this work:
“For this project I wanted to reimagine improvisational drawings that I had done as murals within the exhibition space.  I was excited to see how integrated they were emotionally and spatially.  This project has inspired me to want to do large architectonic scale projects again.”
