Art Exhibit at Eastern Wyoming
September 14, 2005
TORRINGTON, WY - Eastern Wyoming College's new Art Instructor, Karl Brake, will be displaying a variety of his current paintings in the EWC Fine Arts Auditorium from September 24 th – October 2 nd from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. His acrylic on panel paintings are derived from photographic research done in Wyoming, Idaho, and Nevada, framing desert and canyon landscapes with portals inspired by Renaissance, Greco-Roman, Medieval, and Assyrian architecture.
Karl has studied, painted, sculpted, and drawn the human form, landscape, and even abstract art based on the proportions, dynamism, and nobility of the classical heritage. During the past few years he found himself focusing especially on the landscape, settings and views made elegiac through light and color.
Brake comments, "I spent this past summer working from the landscape that holds that sort of mystery and almost spiritual beauty for me, that of the West. These images from Idaho, Nevada, and Wyoming are heightened with color and rhythmic form to portray them as something more than just beautiful, something enduring and sacred."
