Brian Bishop


2008 Exhibit Dates
Oct 26 To Nov 21

Brian Bishop's paintings attempt to pinpoint the overlap between opposites such as the intangible and the tangible, the conceptual and the visceral, the forgotten and the remembered. Some of his inspiration comes from snapshot photography, surveillance films, and portraiture study. His work also addresses memory, in particular, as it is explored through the medium of photography and asks the following question: Does the moment captured by the camera represent truth or fiction?

Brian Bishop attended The School of Visual Arts in New York; he earned a B.F.A. from Memphis College of Art, and an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He recently exhibited his work at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, The University of Delaware, and Georgetown University. He is an Assistant Professor of Art at Framingham State College in Framingham, MA.
