November 2 - February 1, 2019
A show of a site-specific painting and sculpture by Lockhart-based artist Hollie Brown.
“The first known painting dubbed The Triumph of Death exists as a fresco in the Regional Gallery of Palazzo Abatellis in Palermo, dated around 1446, creator unknown. In 1562, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, inspired by the earlier fresco, painted a 16th century update, also titled The Triumph of Death. The third iteration is currently underway in the form of a site specific painting by American artist Hollie Brown.
In Brown’s work, cut outs from both the 15th and 16th century versions are pasted onto a color field, which was rendered in a slapstick manner via computer drawing programs. Images alluding to the sun and black holes, representing questions of life and alternate dimensions, take a center spot in her two seemingly identical murals, each over 25 feet long and 8 feet high.”
