Press release

Warm Wallpaper and Forbidden Doors will be on display through Mar. 6. The artist’s reception for this show—originally scheduled for tomorrow, Feb. 2, at 5:30 p.m.—has been postponed until next Wed., Feb. 9, at 5:30 p.m. because of the weather.

Kieran Maiorana grew up on the North Fork of Long Island as the youngest of six siblings. He graduated from the University of Scranton with a degree in English Literature. He now lives in New Haven. He is self-taught as an artist with a little help from some friends, most notably Max Toth, Mike McConnell and his brother Tom. Among his biggest influences are Cecily Brown and Joseph Cornell. His work has appeared in Citylights Gallery in Bridgeport and Café Atlantique in Milford.

Maiorana also writes creatively, and elements of storytelling—including tension, structure and action—carry over into the aesthetic of his artwork. His pieces are introspective in nature, often focusing on aspects of childhood and how they shape us as adults. He hopes to create a sense of longing, nostalgia and trajectory in his pieces.
