Nothing Lasts Forever - Show opening in Portland, OR
Opening Reception: Friday, May 6th 6-9pm
On View: May 6th - June 4th, 2016
Stephanie Chefas Projects is delighted to announce NOTHING LASTS FOREVER, the U.S. solo debut from Toronto based artist Brian Donnelly. Donnelly is well known for his aggressive approach to portraiture that involves defacing meticulously executed figures through the use of turpentine, hand sanitizer, and other materials. The resulting work is a study in deterioration, fortified by the philosophy that to take away from something can be just as provocative as to add to it.
