  • Brian R. Donnelly’s portraiture deconstructs the dialogue between the audience and objects by experimenting with the fragile nature of artwork. Faces deteriorate, separate, and occasionally combust in his work, redefining it as transitional rather than perpetual. Presenting fading memories instead of permanent effigies Donnelly draws a parallel between the fragility of artwork and the ephemeral nature of ourselves.
