DISPATCH – Mar 7, 2012 (7:02 p.m.)
New York, NY
Patrick Brennan’s abstract art nimbly combines painting and assemblage. A first look doesn’t always reveal the subtle lacing amid the explosion of angular shapes and color. His method of combining artistic elements can leave the mind wondering.
The afterglow of impression appears, unbidden, after walking away. A memory can coax viewers to return and explore.
“His embrace of the struggle and play in the act of creation lead to honest and surprising results both strident and beautiful,” said Ryan Wallace, co-director and co-owner of Halsey Mckay Gallery.
New York City art fair goers have the chance to see a solo show of Brennan’s work at Volta NY. Brennan is the artist of choice of the Halsey Mckay Gallery of East Hampton.
Volta NY features solo artist projects presented by a gallery. Volta NY is presenting 80 galleries from 25 countries and 45 cities.
“The solo format of the Volta fair is the perfect outlet for Patrick’s work,” said Wallace. “While each painting has a strong individual presence, his process of thought and creation can best be appreciated and understood amongst several works.”
At Volta NY, Brennan’s art will be presented in a clean installation. Here’s a brief preview:
