EXHIBIT “Landscapes: Sculpture by Jeff Brosk and Paintings by Bruce Brainard” at ELLIO Fine Art

February 16 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW FEBRUARY 2 – MARCH 3, 2024: Celebrated painter Bruce Brainard and New York sculptor Jeffrey Brosk both draw inspiration from the natural landscape. In this exhibition at ELLIO Fine Art, the artists explore themes of light and surface through different mediums.

Raised in a small farming community nestled under the Idaho Tetons, Bruce Brainard draws inspiration from early American landscape artist George Inness. Brainard’s scenes of trees and sky emanate an inner tranquility and evoke the infinite in a manner that harkens back to the great German Romanticist Caspar David Friedrich. Brainard’s compositions are also distinctive for their warm realism and deft handling of light, which suffuses the canvas and animates the spiritual dimension of his work. Brainard has been devoted to the exploration of the landscape and a conduit for meaning throughout his career. He received both his BFA and MFA from Brigham Young University in Utah, where he continues to live and work.

The work of sculptor Jeffrey Brosk is heavily influenced by the American West, a region whose mountains, vistas, and flowing prairies have long been a rich source of spiritual and aesthetic inspiration for American artists. The warm wooden tones and strong lines of Brosk’s pieces reflect his preoccupation with this vast and rugged landscape. Brosk’s sculptures are a testament to a powerful harmony between artist and materials: organic forms and natural wooden grain work in tandem with right angles and blocks of gold leaf. Brosk takes as his starting point salvaged pieces of wood and stone, among other materials. He has a BA and BS from the University of Pennsylvania and a Masters in Architecture from MIT. Though frequently found hiking and horseback riding in the mountains, he currently lives and works in New York City.
