On view September 10th – October 20th, 2014
Opening reception Sunday, September 14th (4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
Posters for nothing. Begetting and beheading. Breakout hits, not enough. Genuine excellence in cratering. Fake drips, late to the game. Everybody loves distribution. Brancusi playing golf. Maybe later for the win. Lost and found flavors. I want the information. Hooray no one’s here. Let’s rebrand them as terrorists. Production life. There’s always coffee. Everything takes forever. You/me a small part of forever, and everything.
Born in Portland, John Brodie has been painting for more than 20 years, with explorations in book art, prints and multiples, and sculpture.
