For the next three days, make sure to check out my new painting titled "Instrumental Flight" at the Crime on Canvas group art show taking place at Life is Beautiful.
The Joseph Watson Collection presents the solo works of painter Brian Martinez in a show titled “20”. Preview night is August 31, 6-10pm and will be on display throughout the month of September.
The title of the show represents the age of the artist and the importance of the beginning of young adulthood. At this stage in life, the mind is activated into choosing a path to achieve monumental goals, self identity, and purpose. Join us for an evening of paintings by Brian Martinez and being part of the creative journey as it begins.
Order online and save 30% on prints or visit the gallery from 2-5pm today to get more deals! Art makes the perfect gift. Also, check out the art of Karen Jaikowski and James Henninger today.
We are gearing up for our featured artist for June: Sean Danconia. More info will get posted soon.
JW: Why do you create art?
DD: I create art to inspire others.
JW: Why the Lifted series?
DD: The Lifted series was inspired by a conscious desire to inspire others to be greater than themselves
JW: What is it like exhibiting at JWC?
DD: Exhibiting at JWC was amazing because of the level of professionalism and support I have received not only at my show but in years prior. I have known Joseph since 1997 since I went to Art Center. I am honored to have had the opportunity to show at JWC
JW: What is the response on your newly launched Lifted shirts?
DD: I have received a powerful response in regards to my new Lifted t-shirts. People don't know whether to wear them or frame them.
This piece is entitled conscious movements. At the top there is an eye separated by the eyeball, located at the immediate left. This disconnectedness represents the disconnect our minds become when paced with having to perceive concepts an ideas. This perception sometimes causes rifts between individuals. Even though the cornea is detached from the socket of the eye, the eye begins to glaze over all of the industrialization below it, and cries because although we have created so much, we have also destroyed so much more.
