Paintings by David Brewster
April 14 - May 15, 2016
Artist Reception: Friday, May 13: 5-8 pm
I'm in the process of creating a dynamic suite of interrelated oil paintings that provide exposure to rarely seen views of the spectacular visual realities implicit within various types of power generation plants operating in Massachusetts. The often monstrous and bizarre forms of nuclear silos, hydroelectric structures, wind turbines, and solar farms speak to vast movements of resources and energy and to unique and significant impacts on the surrounding landscape and communities. My main tool is the foam paint roller, which is the perfect match for the exuberance I bring to my work, the energy and velocity of how I move paint increasingly becoming a subject in itself. Letting the mark expand and travel and become something more in its own right, I’m able to liberate from descriptive tendency and come closer to my ideal of working as nature works, with the marks blooming and evolving of their own accord.
