DESCRIPTION

Intense magic realism and a haunting tenderness describe Brett Bigbee’s (American, b. 1954)human-scaled figurative paintings.  Two early paintings from the 1990s are on view – one depicting his wife and frequent model sitting nude on a bold flower patterned sofa.  The second is a self-portrait of the artist holding his infant son.
