About Brian


Brian earned a BFA with Distinction from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA. Since then he has had solo shows at the Reciever Gallery in San Francisco, CA and at Space 1026 in Philadelphia, PA.

Brian draws inspiration from his belief in a perpetual creation myth; this world constantly destroys itself and then blossoms from its own ashes, in flux with life, permanence, and reality. Brian has constructed a new American folktale through his technicolor paintings that are tarnished with American history, Pre-Renaissance and Persian miniature painting, worship, dreamscapes, backlight posters, and the fantastic. These new works are vividly patterned compositions that are designed to entrance the viewer like a siren, disguising and distorting violence.

I find these works visually stimulating!

I love the bold color and rich blacks. Wonderful to see someone working in Gouache. One of my favorites of the year!

bit over the top, anything but subtle, not sure his work and artist statement align.

its colorfully kute :)

the sky is beautiful in contrast to the black mountains.

Love the silouette of the mountains in front of the red sky. The ammunition seems to have a life of it's own. Being larger than the people, it shows how war and violence takes precedence over human life. Nice work.
