Brian Bress- in the Box, Chrysler Museum of Art
By Frederick Henderson
Chrysler Museum of Art showcases local talent with Brian Bress’ installation. Bress who is well known for his eccentric and humanoid characters follows up by creating Man with A Cigarette, his first full- scale figure presented on a video wall comprised of four slightly unsynchronized screens, creating a slow, smooth, lagging image. Bress counts his inspirations from a pen and paper drawing of a man in a thrift shop and an out of sync video wall at an airport. The installation addresses questions about representation, cognition and perception. Bress does this in a light, fun even cartoonish way.
In the Box continues until February 19th 2017 at Chrysler Museum of Art Norfolk Virginia.
