The Buddy System

Select Works by Brent Braniff

Braniff will present a cross section of his two dimensional work along with samplings from his music and video recordings. The 2-D work will include realist drawings, paintings, and photographs of the male figure. For
the past few years Braniff has also been experimenting with abstracts as a contrast to the more realist drawings. Braniff says the abstracts are a more of a way to experiment with the physical approach to art. For Braniff, the movement of paint produces a whole new language that allows him to convey ideas with a completely different voice. The music videos and recordings are another aspect of Braniff's work. He has been exploring music and sound design since the 1970's and allow for the incorporation of visual and audio
elements. Braniff said he has always wanted to be an illustrator. He feels that illustrators tell simple, direct stories and in the process convince you of ideas compelling enough to tempt you to read, buy or be intrigued by what the artist produced. Braniff says he was driven to the hard surface of illustration board for that very purpose. Braniff says he wanted his work to be tasty, sugary sweet with subject matter that would be as tempting as it was provocative. Braniff has been drawing the male figure for over thirty years and telling a story that involves love, sex, politics and the emotional complexity of the being human. Braniff feels that the mediums, paintings, music and videos are all connected, and when one can't say what he wants it to, the other will. He
feels lucky to have these things to spiritually fall back on. Braniff states that he rarely intentionally puts hidden meanings into his work. It is all spelled out. You just need to look a little beyond the surface.

Please be advised there is a mature theme for this exhibition.

"Texture & Love" - Janie Myers

January 8 - February 6, 2015

Janie Myers was born and raised in Minot, and has been involved in art as long as she can remember, and always creating something. Relatives often show Janie pieces that she had made for them in the past and that they still hold on to and cherish. This exhibition will include some of those cherished pieces as well as current work. In 2001 Myers started exploring the process of sculpting with medium on canvas, followed by acrylic paint over the surface. Myers calls it Acrylic with a twist, "Full of Texture! I love it. It is so much fun." Myers first
sculpts on the canvas, and then paints over the sculpture. "It is like drawing it out twice and then painting it four - five times."  Myers says you really have to think differently with this approach. One has to really think what goes where first, rather than the traditional process of painting over a canvas and figuring it out as one goes along.
