"My work is about expressing emotion and thought through line and color, building what Bryce Marden calls 'a sounding board for the spirit'."
- Andrew Conti
Andrew Conti is an abstract painter based in Bucks County. His paintings are based on flat and abstract forms of rocks, landscape, and monuments - often inspired by scenes from the local area. Inspired by these forms Conu has developed a process of layering masses of paint and calligraphic lines to build my own forms of monuments and steles.

Bucks County Connection
"Despite my many travels, and living in various parts of the world and country, the landscape and forms of Bucks County have always appeared in my work. Most specifically, the large rock forms of Buckingham Mountain and valley on which I spent many days of my youth." - Andrew L. Conti
