Michael Brennan: Knife Paintings

December 2006

Brooklyn artist Michael Brennan’s installation consists of five new paintings produced since relocating from the Bowery in Lower Manhattan to the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. The paintings reflect the change in his environment and a newfound feeling for structural form inspired by the industrial remnants — smokestack towers, derelict advertising signs, metal barges, the elevated subway platform and Brooklyn/Queens Expressway — of his new surroundings.
