Artist, Brian Willmont presents his new works at Receiver Gallery. The show entitled Skinwalker, features new paintings, sculptural and video work, which creates hallucinations of the frontier.

Brian draws inspiration from his belief in a perpetual creation myth; this world constantly destroys itself and then blossoms from its own ashes, in flux with life, permanence, and reality. Brian has constructed a new American folktale through his technicolor paintings that are tarnished with American history, Pre-Renaissance and Persian miniature painting, worship, dreamscapes, backlight posters, and the fantastic. These new works are vividly patterned compositions that are designed to entrance the viewer like a siren, disguising and distorting violence. Up until October 23, 2009
