Brett Amory's first ever UK Solo Show!

    The Outsiders ( The Lazarides Gallery) will begin 2011 with Brett Amory's first ever UK solo show!
    His work was featured in The Next Generation group show at London Miles last June, so i assure you that it is well worth seeing his work in person. I think he beautifully captures those normal day-to-day street scenes many of us are so accustomed to seeing with real expression and with brush strokes that are so swift  they almost set the pieces in motion.   
    The exhibition entitled ' Intentional Abstractions' comprises of a collection of paintings based on a Amory's 'Waiting' series, which focuses on travelers waiting on undergrounds, subways and platforms. The project began in 2001, and as it progressed the subjects ceased to be exclusively travelers, with the emphasis shifting to anonymous figures within the urban landscape.
       A selection of Amory's work depicts the urban individual's yearning for presence and
the seeming impossibility of attaining it. The paintings portray commuters in transit
immersed in a quiet, even hopeful state or alternately plagued by the anguish of unfulfilled anticipation.
You can see an online preview of the work Here, and read the entire press release Here.

The show is on from January 14th till the 12th of February
The Outsiders, 8 Greek Street, W1D 4DG
