DDOA Fellowship Opening

Dave Brinley 

UD Assistant Professor David Brinley, a 2012 Established individual Artist Fellow in Painting, will present an exhibition titled Circumventions, in the Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery from February 1-22, 2013. The Gallery, open weekends from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Friday, February 1 from 5-8 p.m. as part of Wilmington's Art Loop.

David Brinley's solo exhibition will showcase personal paintings based on past experiences that convey ideas for viewers to relate to their own inspirations. Brinley combines these themes into paintings that feature domestic objects juxtaposed with characters that relate to-and are drawn from-the artist's personal history and memories. Personal obeservation, notes from Brinley's sketchbook, ephemera, vintage books, music, and recollections inform the subject matter of each painting and ultimately determine the context and the content of work.

Brinley graduated form the University of Delaware and from the Art Center college of Design in Los Angeles, CA. He received his MFA at Murray Tinkelman's Hartford Art School in the program illustrators. Brinley has exhibited his work nationally and has had pieces featured in publications such as TIME, GQ, Rolling Stone, Newsweek, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly and the Los Angeles and New York Times.
