Artists: Brett Amory
Location: The Outsiders Newcastle
Dates: Friday 20th of April 2012 to Saturday 26th of May 2012
American contemporary artist Brett Amory is widely considered one of the breakthrough artistic talents of the past year. He is best known for his "Waiting" paintings, a body of work that has spanned the last decade documenting figures and landscapes in the Bay Area. The new collection Waiting 101 debuts at Outsiders Gallery in Newcastle, UK in April 2012.
The compositions in the exhibition focus on Amory’s newfound relationship with technology, and the implicit freedom it allows in his work. Delving into documentation methods which new modes of ambulatory technology offer, Amory experienced a metamorphosis in his painting preparation and application. With intimate, firsthand knowledge of the many ways that technology can affects the lives of those it touches, Amory explores the avenues it’s opened up for him as an artist in Waiting 101.
