Brent Ozaeta Reception :: This Friday

About the Artist
b. 1985, Dallas, Texas. Ozaeta graduated in 2007 with a BA from the University of Texas at Dallas. That same year he received an award from the Dallas Museum of Art's Degoyler Fund, which recognizes the talent and potential of young visual artists. Ozaeta will also be featured in the upcoming edition of New American Paintings. Brent Ozaeta lives and works in Dallas, and is represented by The Public Trust.

About the Exhibition
Ozaeta's work focuses on the consumption of information and the insertion of ideas through visual relationships. The work maintains a juxtaposition of seemingly arbitrary imagery caused by the everyday bombardment of visual media via the Internet. The images presented include subjects like Japanese pop culture icons, variety T.V. shows, videogames, and comic books.

These images are produced as silkscreen prints then transferred onto canvas. The collages, which are stitched together from a library of images, are composed beforehand on drafting vellum. There is often an additional layer added to the pieces utilizing different media such as pencil or gouache.

This solo exhibition will be the artist's first with The Public Trust. Opening Reception: Fri. 10.24.08 (6-9PM)
Exhibition runs through November.
