Brian Mashburn - Until the Sea Shall Free Them
Brian Mashburn is an oil painter based in the mountains near, North Carolina. His works feature beautifully rendered subjects from the animal kingdom set in the foreground, against ethereal, layered, landscapes. In his paintings the natural world and human habitats are shown at close quarters as spires and ferris wheels jut out from mountain ranges and treelines. Animals and birds are brought into the foreground and presented as the focal points of the pieces, with the blurring of boundaries between humanity and the natural world as a compelling backdrop.
