"Laughing Cavalier" Brandon Mansell, Artist Profile
Added November 28th, 2009
As an artist we reference the past and take from it what seems relevant, and because of this, painting is not a linear history. I feel it is time for a renaissance in the most literal sense. Ideas have taken precedence over substance, which has led to an increasingly ephemeral body of modern art. This robs subsequent generations of tangible art and creates a disconnect between an artists intentions and the reality, which increasingly is merely documentation of an event.
