The Art of Brian Donnelly

The work of Brian Donnelly is at firstsomething near electric shock, a volt that causes one to stand erectand gaze with mouth open in wonderment at the strange beasts thatappear before them. For what are these creatures? Human bodies withanimal's heads that are dripping with... glue? These questions thatarise allow Donnelly a strong hold on his viewers and allow him toexplore many themes and metaphors through his attachments onto nude,human bodies. Donnelly wants you to wonder "why?" as that's where thefun lies, as with trying to answer these questions Donnelly's arttakes root visually. Work such as this is hard to shake. - Zach Tutor
