Brian Mashburn - Oil & Water
Brian Mashburn is an American artist based in the mountains of North Carolina. He studied at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, receiving a BFA in 2002.
Brian's work depicts urban and industrial landscapes in close proximity to the natural world. Primarily an oil painter, Mashburn uses narrative and meticulous attention to detail to engage the viewer. His work is informed by everyday observations as well as an interest in history, natural science, and philosophy.
This latest series, Oil & Water, continues to explore this confluence of the manmade and natural worlds. It also sees the artist expand his range of media, incorporating works made using water-based media (gouache, watercolor and ink) on paper alongside his more familiar oil on canvas paintings.
