Hello and happy December! I wanted to let you know that the collaborative project I have been doing with Kirsten Moore now has a name and it's own shop, called Fancy Mammal. We have Blank cards , prints, and of course original works available. We will be having a show in late January of new works, and I will have more info as it get closer. In the meantime here are the links to the shop and Instagram page:
I have a new show up featuring collaborative works with Kirsten Moore at Johnny Sole, located at 815 SW Alder in Downtown Portland Oregon. These are mixed media works done with ink and acrylic paint, part of an evolution of works Kirsten and I have been doing over the past few years. Below are several images of new works that will be at the show, and I will be posting more photos of works with dimensions and prices soon (to decrease confusion, I will not be listing the originals in my online shop, but if you can't make it to the show and are interested in something, you can contact me about availability) You can also take a look at Kirsten's website for more images of new work.
The show will run through early January and Kirsten and I will be making lots of new affordable works and prints. The official first thursday event will happen on December 3, at which time I will also be showing a large installation of new abstract paintings (more about that soon!)
Just finished a new group of creature paintings, and there are a few images below. I am not doing any holiday shows in Portland this year, but everything is available for sale in my online shop. Cheers!
I have a new series of collaborative works with good friend Kirsten Moore of Piper Ewan. Recently she has been working on a project where she draws a bird a day to fill her calendar book for a year. Though she is known for her insanely intricate garments and clothing designs, I have always been a big fan of her charming and delicate pen and ink drawings. I recently approached her about painting backgrounds for some of her drawings, and after a couple of trial pieces on birch boards, we found they were turning out quite nicely. Several months later we have enough works to do a little show, which is now up at Johnny Sole, located at 815 SW Alder St. in Portland. If you would like to see all the collaborations, go here. All the originals are for sale at Johnny Sole, or contact me for pricing if you live out of town. Oh! and there are also prints available here.
Here are a few progress shots of one of the collaborations:
It is that time of year when I start digging out the clutter collected from a winter spent holed up in the studio. I have noticed I have a great deal of random paintings laying around and would like to make room for new stuff, so I'm having a little spring sale for May and June. most of the small stuff is posted in my online shop, and the larger stuff is available for viewing at my house in Portland. Sorry, I am not posting the really big stuff online due to shipping costs.
Again, If you live out of town, you may purchase smaller works to be shipped at brentwear.etsy.com
