Connor Acklin

Within my works I tend to lean toward lots of bright colors patterns textures, anything that is going to capture the eye. Mixed media is what I’m best at. Spray paint on top of oil and acrylic. I dabble in a variety of works, anything that I can create layers with. Inspiration will strike at any moment. I find myself working when I feel everything is going right. Life has a way of placing things where you need them to fall. Art is an escape for me. I’ll see or find an image that’ll inspire me and right in that moment is when I pull out the canvas. Some of my work is rather morbid or can take on a darkness. I see the beauty in all things present. Life teaches us everything we need to know. Often times I will research certain topics to find inspiration. Intimate and open we all remain if we simply set our initial judgements aside.
