Dec. 6th - Dec. 30th, 2012
'All Black Everything' is a solo exhibition of new works by Brian Willmont. A native of Boston, this is Brian’s first solo show back in the area since 2007.
Moments of restraint and intention are balanced with accident, which activates loose poetic association through investigations with gouache, bic pen, enamel, marbling, folding, sanding and pouring inks. Willmont creates combinations of symbologies, with geometric abstractions and organic images that are tranquil, yet chaotic, balancing a meditative calm with the overstimulation of the modern world.
From Boston MA, Brian Willmont received his BFA with honors from the Massachusetts College of Art in 2007. Interested in the world around us as well as the world within, working on paper, sculpture and installation, he explores the relationship between the object and the beholder, where art practice becomes idolatry. Willmont has had solo and two person shows at Receiver Gallery and Park Life in San Francisco, Space 1026 in Philadelphia, and LaMontagne Gallery, The Rhys Gallery and the Boston Center for the Arts in Boston. His work has been written about in Juxtapoz Magazine, The Boston Globe, Beautiful/Decay, Hardcore Magazine, The Santa Fe Reporter, The Boston Phoenix, amongst others. In 2005 Brian started Apenest, an experimental group devoted to book and print publishing. Brian lives and works in Brooklyn NY.
