This event has ended.

Brickhouse illuminates the subconscious via his exquisite intimacy of process, combined with use of metaphor and historical myth, a process honed over more than a thirty-five year commitment to painting. His works reveal a desperate authenticity of purpose and blend an intimacy of scale with the grandness of mythology, which he infuses with personal stories of a life of pain and redemption. The tension created by this mix engenders a powerful and deeply moving experience: he is a “painter’s painter”.

Brickouse has been a beloved teacher at New York’s School of Visual Arts for more than thirty years. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections; including The Wadsworth Museum, The San Diego Museum of Art and the California Center for Arts. He most recently has had one-person exhibitions at Fred Giampetro Gallery in New Haven and John Davis Gallery in Hudson, NY. Brickhouse has a long and storied exhibition history, that includes showing with Max Protech Gallery and Pamela Auchincloss Gallery for more than two decades.

During the Brickhouse exhibition at Life on Mars Gallery, we are also pleased to be presenting the work of artist James Prez in our Project Room. Prez combines found and repurposed materials, making use of a brilliant and highly trained sense of design. His works seek to transform our expectations through playfulness - a sense of humor coupled with a delicate modesty. They reflect the best of the “outsider” tradition, illuminated by a honed knowledge of contemporary practice, bringing to mind a hybrid of James Castle and Richard Tuttle. We will be exhibiting his bottle drawings, works on paper and repurposed books.
