Lainard Bush attended Ohio State and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, magna cum laude, from Kent State University. He also has a Master of Fine Arts from San Francisco Art Institute. His investigation of the spiritual art of other cultures, his travel to Mexico's archaeological sites and museums, and his abiding interest in Native American art have been strong influences in his painting. Bush's recent acrylic paintings on canvas comprise intricately interwoven geometric patterns rendered in intensely saturated colors interspersed with metallic pigments. His paintings are stringently organized and precisely composed with the various layers of pattern interacting with one another to create a dynamic, shimmering play of light and color.



My paintings can be approached and appreciated as a visual equivalent of music. As in music, my compositions utilize the formal devices of repetition, rhythm, and layered patterns of variation. Time is required to experience the complexity and subtleties of my work.
