Dark Light @ Jonathan Levine – NYC
30/06/2011 - 30/07/2011free
And together with our admired Dan Witz and his Mosh Pit Paintings, Mr Brett Amory will also be presenting his new works in what will be his debut solo exhibition in New York!
The California-based artist brings to the Jonathan Levine Gallery his latest oils expanding on his ongoing series of works entitled “Waiting”… studies of urban life through fragmented cityscapes and anonymous, isolated figures.
Amory began the Waiting series in 2001 with paintings depicting commuter subjects seemingly detached from their fellow passengers and surrounding environments, inspired by the introverted culture of public transit and inhabitants of the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, where the artist lived for thirteen years….
Works that are mainly based on photographs he’s taken himself of the city architecture and its regular inhabitants, those he tends to speak to. But feels particularly attracted to paint lonely individuals, those who look lost, maybe a bit awkward, those who just can’t fit in our society.
Brett’s works have also evolved over time reducing existing elements of the urban environment and filling the gaps with “negative space”, focusing on the human figures who tend to look like ghosts.
And because we forgot to tell you last week when we talked about Dan Witz‘ exhibition the Jonathan Levine gallery will be hosting Mr Amory’s paintings for the next 31 days. You know what to do if you’re in New York right?
