Hi-Fructose favorite Brett Amory (featured in HF Vol. 20) has been busy in his studio preparing “Twenty-Four in San Francisco,” an extensive, interdisciplinary project that will debut at Sandra Lee Gallery in San Francisco on October 4. Amory’s painting style is a slow, meditative form of observation; the artist works on an intuitive basis, capturing potential subjects for paintings with his iPhone’s camera based on somewhat of a gut feeling. Pushing the boundaries of his highly praised “Waiting” series, “Twenty-Four in San Francisco” creates a multi-sensory experience for the viewer to see and hear Amory’s rich observations through oil paintings, video, audio and collections of found objects.
Amory selected 24 significant places (both personal and historical) in San Francisco and spent one hour filming, photographing and observing each, ultimately culminating in a representation of 24 hours in the city. Found love letters, garments and medical supplies accompany paintings of the locations, put into context further by Shaun Roberts‘ photos documenting the creative process. Take a look at our exclusive photos from Brett Amory’s studio as well as some teaser videos.
