William Brickel - Far From Anything
The Artist Room is pleased to present the solo exhibition William Brickel: Far From Anything (5 – 28 May 2022).
Brickel is known for his uniquely sensitive and eloquent explorations of the human figure.
Including new paintings, charcoal drawings and watercolours, this exhibition continues his ongoing intention to uncover how the passage of time re-shapes how we understand history.
The show also includes a new and unseen series of smaller oil paintings on aluminium and wood. In these works, which focus on the face, shy and withdrawn figures appear to be hiding, voyeuristically gazing at mysterious events happening beyond the confines of the image.
Far From Anything follows the artist’s first institutional exhibition at San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, California (2021–22).
