Conor Mccreedy- Blue Sultan

My paintings–that’s where I recognize myself the most. I try to stay close to my dreams.

Conor Mccreedy

From its beginnings as an unassuming color, blue has become a magic formula through the ages, a sensory experience that entices and calms, that makes us dream and creates inner clarity. When looking at Conor Mccreedy’s paintings today, he plays with the nuances of only a single color. By creating his own Mccreedyblue, or Mccblue, onlookers are drawn in to experience the transformation of the autonomous color from monochrome to an abstract neo-expressionism.

This book invites readers to witness semi-recognizable and timeless landscapes inhabited by peculiar forms that encapsulate the fragility of nature. An ode to his childhood in South Africa, these works are an attempt to stare into the face of nature, riddled with mysteries and deep thoughts. To be in the now with the wild, mystical adventure of the unknown power of the natural world. Statements from prominent figures within the art world supplement Mccreedy’s influential imagery.

South African-born, Swiss-based British Irish artist Conor Mccreedy is regarded as one of the most outstanding creatives of our time. His distinctively monochromatic paintings are in some of the world’s most important private and institutional collections with solo exhibitions across multiple major cities.

Mccreedy has defined a distinct monochromatic blue vocabulary through in his work since he started to paint only in blue since an early age. Disciplined by a single color, focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, he seeks to transcend visionary boundaries.
