Brandon Cooper (b. 1987)
"I make raw, thick, juicy paintings, honest and unpolished, full of blunt impasto brushwork and bold color. My art defies every media-saturated LCD screen, every neatly organized data spreadsheet, every app on your phone; it challenges you to remember that you're more than what your Facebook profile says about you.
People inspire my art: their character, their worldview, their hopes and fears and dreams.
Born into a family of artists and musicians, I have been practicing art all my life. I am self-taught in painting, and I work primarily from intuition and imagination. My work begins with an inspiration, a germ of something unique someone said or did that stuck in my mind, and evolves through a process of sketching, editing, and improvisation on canvas."
Brandon Cooper's influences include Chuck Connelly, Francis Bacon, and Willem deKooning.
