Brilliant Champions Gallery is thrilled to present “Megacosm”, a solo exhibition by Beau Stanton. This collection of works are focused on the elements of a three dimensional stop motion animation filmed with Brilliant Champions. Megacosm denotes a universe of its own as described through Stanton's unique visual language. The video is accompanied by site specific installations throughout the gallery, showcasing the artist’s full spectrum of multidisciplinary art including oil paintings, sculpture, and printmaking.
Translating his oil paintings into one still frame after another a cryptic and metaphorical theme unfolds. These scenes come to life within a world of sculpted polymer clay, screen printed cut outs, wooden miniatures, paint and paper. Ornamented with familiar imagery from Victorian patterns, letterpress printing, and archetypal symbols.
In a matter of moments Stanton’s worlds turn away from the emptiness of death to the brightest moments of birth and creation. The short stories featured in the stop motion film are recreated throughout the gallery in small shadow boxed and free standing statues.
Please join us for the opening reception of Megacosm, a solo exhibition by Beau Stanton with an opening reception on February 24th, 2017 from 6 - 9pm and is open to the public. The exhibition runs through April 1st, 2017 with open hours Thursday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm and by appointment or chance.
