"Conceptual Representation"  Artist Talk: Brett Reichman

Brett Reichman presents an overview of his studio practice and his inquiry into conceptual representation. His highly detailed, labor intensive approach to representational painting addresses the complexities of identity politics. Through the post-modern staging of the figure in performative situations with fabricated objects, he questions societal norms by constructing images of exaggeration and artifice. He applies the concept of critical realism as both a research method and as a way of seeking to comprehend sociopolitical realities.
