New Work by Brian Hart at Northeastern University

Brian Hart's exhibit is currently on display through Monday, March 12, 2018 at Gallery 360.
"My work owes equally to the traditions of history painting and pop art. Themes in the paintings are often derived from stories and myths I enjoyed as a child and, instead of a straightforward approach, I reinterpret these stories using pictures appropriated from a wide range of sources.

This is not meant to disrespect the works of previous artists but meant to show how these images can have the same power, importance, and meaning. Pictorial symbols in art used to be a language clearly read by the public, and allegorical paintings had set codes of symbols used in order to communicate to an illiterate audience. Now these same symbols can have a multitude of meanings depending on their context. The dense layering obscures a straightforward interpr…
