Just Published - Mac Titmus and the Art of Digital Painting by Karin Lazarus in CSA Journal Published
Mac is a graduate of Adelphi University with a BA in Humanities and an MA in Education majoring in Creative Writing. He is now retired after teaching in the NY public school system. Several years after retiring Mac began pursuing his life long time passion for art. He is an Abstract Digital Painter/Collagist based in Suffolk Co., NY.
Mac sees life as a voyage and art as an attempt to translate that journey into expression. An expression painted from hues of triumph, regret, ecstasy and disappointment. Color is his medium. Saturated color, lyrical movement, forceful line, and complex imagery are just a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe his work. His passion for vividness translates into a stimulating and climatic experience. What you envision in his work becomes your experience and the only one with any validity. Mac offers his art as a moment of thought and awareness. What you do with that vision after remains your responsibility.
His latest achievements include 1st Place in Brookhaven Arts Membership Juried show with "of Heaven and Earth," 1st Place in South Bay Art Association Juried Member Show with "Maternal Bond," 1st Place in Brookhaven Arts and Humanities Council Abstract show with "Sizzle, 1st Place in Brookhaven Arts and Humanities Contemporary Show with "Paint the sky with Summer’s kisses" and the Viewer's Choice award at Briarcliffe College LI Artists Exhibit in December and January. In October he was chosen as a featured artist at the Brookhaven Arts and Humanities Council and was the subject of an article in the CSA Journal in November. He was also recently featured as the 2nd place winner in Graphic Arts for "Art Buzz, The 2014 Collection." Art Buzz ” is a not-for-profit visual artists’ alliance dedicated to exposing emerging artists to a worldwide audience.
Mac's work is currently on display in galleries across Long Island in individual, group and juried shows. This coming June 3 - 14 he will be part of a two artist exhibition to be held in Southold at the Cosden Price Gallery. The Gallery is located at 54127 Main Road, Southold.
