THE BARAN STUDIO

Artist Statement

 

Classically trained to the masters, Slovakian born Martin Baran

recently moved to the United States and presents his latest collection

of oil paintings inspired by nature in passionate colors titled “Inner Flower.”

 

This series is powerful and vibrant while at the same time sensitive

and full of emotion to each who view. Tragedy does not play a role

rather an emotional impulse of something that longs to be heard in each of us.

 

Barans work doesn’t reflect a human being or any linear objects for that matter

instead evoking a sense of ones own reality determining if they see chaos, peace,

fantasy or something else entirely.

 

“Expressive” instead of “Expressionism,” says Martin as he creates bold

and vibrant imagery that takes you into the world of Baran.
