John Brophy: Sages and Sirens

This event is in the past
Nov 14–Dec 7, 2019
Roq La Rue Capitol Hill (Seattle)
Perfectionist portraitist Brophy first plans his painting in a 3D rendering program, then uses this image as a model for an oil-on-panel piece, sometimes using paints he's made himself. He is, in fact, going for that uncanny-valley look, so don't be surprised if you feel an uneasy prickle at the back of your neck as you look on his depictions of Freddie Mercury, Abe Lincoln, and others.
