Marc Brotherton’s “Killskreen“ paintings examine the language of abstract painting as a product of our hyper-capitalist society in the heart of commodity culture during a time of rapid global change.
Brotherton says, “The paintings are a new step forward in the evolution of my work. I use abstraction as a visual language that engages the viewer in a fun and challenging way. I explore painting both materially and conceptually. For visual interest, I try to push the viewers understanding of paint media by employing a variety of different painting applications as well as different types of paint media on canvas supports. My paintings also play with formal principles and elements of design through the use of cast-off shapes and spaces from the past, uniquely combining them into something new.”
Brotherton regularly exhibits his work in solo and group exhibitions, museums, art centers, and art fairs, nationally and locally. He recently presented his original body of Killskreen paintings in a solo exhibition titled, Integer Overflow with Causey Contemporary Fine Art in New York City. He lives and works in Atlanta, GA.
