BRENT WATKINSON


2017 LATE SUMMER EXHIBIT

Brent Watkinson is an accomplished and widely-published illustrator (with such clients as NASA, Time Warner, and American Express, among many others) who brings a deep understanding of composition and color theory to his studio paintings. While the speci c scene or subject depicted is the draw for his viewer, Watkinson is really most interested in mark-making; he treats each composition as a challenge to balance control with release, tidiness with chaos, and precision with strong evidence of the artist’s hand. Painterly and slightly impressionistic, each of his works conveys more than would a snapshot of the same subject, as his expert wielding of color, movement, and balance lend character and depth to each.
