Main Street Books is happy to announce its next featured artist to appear in the Book Loft Gallery. Join us for an opening reception of Brandon Doup’s art show on Friday, September 13 from 5-7pm. Brandon’s work will be up through mid-October.
About the show:
The work I created for this show focus on memory and our sense of place. I use movement as both a visual device and as the theme, using contrast of organic shapes, industrial forms, cool fluid colors and bold black lines. The images of topographical maps, mazes, houses, and homes build a narrative of exact moments, and memories that have been abstracted over time. As a printmaker my style is intentional hard lines to organize forms, and bold colors filling these outlines shapes. Using this same consistent style with painting has allowed me to connect my themes over multiple mediums and create this current body of work “Homes vs Houses.”
About the artist:
Brandon lives in Butler, Ohio with his wife Amy, and two girls Emily and Evelyn. He is a 2007 Ashland University graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Fine Art. He has been building his current body of work over the past year and has exhibited these paintings in several galleries in Columbus and surrounding neighborhoods.
