Brian has always been drawn to the color and motion that abstract art provides. As an artist, he finds metal art, and contemporary art, showcase his use of acrylic paints, metals, and patinas in a way that allows his imagination to express itself fully.
Brian uses strong, bold and richly colored acrylic paint in his paintings. His original artwork features a variety of unusual materials such as hammered copper, old paper currency, vintage kimono fabric, distressed metal , found objects and sand. Anything that captures his interest is considered.
In his collage art, he creates multiple layers of visual interest in each original piece, that invites the viewer to question what is revealed vs. what is concealed. One layer may be a harmonious thematic blending while another may be a juxtaposed color and texture counter point. Every time you add something new, the relationships of existing elements echo and respond back. It’s a art in the moment. Art to reflect on. Art to dream on.
