Brett Amory ‘Oakland Anticipations’ – coming this Oct to Sandra Lee Gallery in SF

Brett Amory 'Waiting #61' - oil on wood panel

Brett Amory ‘Oakland Anticipations’
Exhibition Dates: October 4-30, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 7 5:30-7:30pm

Following hot on the heels of ‘The Waiting Room’, our solo with Amory earlier this year, the artist is currently finishing up his new body of work for the Sandra Lee Gallery up in SF.

Brett Amory’s works are informed by a background in film and motion picture. The use of multiple motifs and repetition of forms in his paintings represent a deeper examination in to the ways that bodies inhabit both space and time. His artworks attempt to defy the singular and linear perspective of time, taking instead a circuitous route towards the issue of representing fleeting temporality.

Fittingly, the artist’s creative methods blend the traditional with the technologically advanced. Amory takes multiple pictures of subjects on the street, usually whilst they are waiting for public transit, and then combines the images using Photoshop. From then on, it is a constant back-and-forth between painting and digital manipulation. The results are singularly haunting images of human figures caught poignantly between ethereality and physicality.

Amory’s Waiting series is populated by people caught in the liminal space between action and movement, where time seems to pause. Painting a series based on people in the act of waiting seems straightforward enough on the surface, but Amory deals powerfully with the issue of poly-locality – how people can be in one place at one time, for example a bus stop, and yet seem to be miles away in their minds.
