Cole Altuzarra

Cole Altuzarra is known for his boldly energetic abstract paintings. Physically & emotionally involved, his process asks that all his body be present & engaged in creation - not just hand & brush.

“Painting feels more like sculpting or even performance art to me. I think it’s because in either case you’re creating an object from scratch & acting a certain way in order to do so.”

He is interested in & most concerned with the energetics of creation. It is this energy of the moment, or as in performance, the expression of emotion which is recorded on canvas as painting. He feels strongly that his paintings are best understood as objects.
