Since 2001 I have been developing the same body of work called ‘Waiting,” a series of paintings about the anticipation of the next moment. While we wait we are waiting for that moment to end. We anticipate the next moment so we are rarely in the present one. We spend so much of our lives coming and going so I paint scenes of traffic, places where we wait to be somewhere else.
"You walk past a hundred, a thousand people every day without noticing more than a handful: the tramp, the loud one, the garish one, the beautiful one. But if you stop and look at any of the other ones, you see that they, too, are individuals – human beings and that is all what Brett's fine work is all about."
"Brett and I go way back, in fact, Brett was in the first show I ever curated, a pop up exhibition back in 2010! Since then, seeing Brett's career skyrocket with sold out exhibitions in London and New York has been absolutely exhilarating."
"Brett Amory's Twenty-Four/Waiting series of paintings are immediate, powerful and demand the viewer's attention. It's quite possibly the most resonating body of work by a young artist that I've yet to come across."
