The work of Brian Bress includes collages, photography, painting, stage and costume design, and even harks to contemporary puppetry. His use of mounted and framed videos is championed for defining new forms of photographic display. Each work is thrilling for its peculiar, cartoonish characters and their humorous tasks of drawing themselves or bobbing in an endless blue ocean. As you glimpse into the hallucinatory worlds he creates, what’s certain is that this artist is having a seriously good time making his work. He has an upcoming solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, and has had recent exhibitions at LACMA in L.A. and the Museo D’art Contemporanea Roma in Rome.
