Michael Brennan: Late Spring
May 5 - May 30
16 Main Street, Suite A
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
MINUS SPACE is excited to present the exhibition Michael Brennan: Late Spring. This is the established Brooklyn, New York-based artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery and it will feature a suite of new small format oil paintings on canvas merging elements of both gestural and geometric abstraction.
Michael Brennan’s paintings address the legacy of reductive, abstract art over the past century, and specifically scrutinize and expand upon the restrictive orthodoxy of the monochrome painting tradition. In his new work, Brennan proposes an opening where the painterly mark and color inherent to it can stand on equal footing. Working in a restrained, icon-like format for the past decade, Brennan’s paintings also reflect upon an array of related topics, such as historical photography, early filmmaking, non-Western visual traditions, literature, and urban culture.
