DESCRIPTION

For Brendan Danielsson's "Diarrhainbow" he deals with man vs. beast, beauty vs. ugly, sensuality vs. violence, etc etc.. This show continues the series that could be considered character studies or fake portraits. Ugly people with, hopefully, some beauty mixed in. Some aspects could be considered grotesque, but I just like to think of them as details… a little something extra to give them interest. I also like titties.

Says Brendan "my work isn't conceptual, personal, spiritual or political and there's no secret underlying message or point I'm trying to get across. I simply create art that I would like to see if I were not the one making it and the process, as I develop a piece, is little more than a stream of consciousness. I do try to incorporate a few elements of conflict to create a narrative but believe it or not, I don't enjoy the actual process of creating art and It's a constant struggle in which I'm my harshest critic. The end result is what keeps me going and when I create something that I actually like, I'm a happy man.
