Chasing the Devil's Music: An Artist's Journey Through the Roots of Rock and Roll
As WTMD 89.7 opens their new doors for the first time to the public, they are honored to open their walls to the amazing artwork of Brett Stuart Wilson for a music themed visual artist reception party.
By: WTMD 89.7 Radio
His work features larger than life built-out portraits of iconic musicians that have helped shape the existance of rock music. It is his intention to demonstrate that portraits do not always have to be an image of perfection but can encompass lumps, bumps and assemblage. These faces are dependent on spontaneous highs and lows of the surface and how paint and illusion can create a portrait revealing adjoining flat and dimesional surfaces. With their seemily asymmetrical faces they give way when viewed from the front to capture a face of a maverick musician. http://www.BrettStuartWilson.com
