Artwork by Pennsylvania artist
As a figurative painter, Zachary’s artistic subject has always been the human form. In his early studies, Zachary found inspiration through portraiture and connected strongly with iconic & macabre images of religion. After a trip to Italy, his familiar portraits, modeled by friends and family, captured religious saints and religious deities as subjects. His classical technique and imagery of traditional religious art are contrasted with geometric, flat designs used as backgrounds. He uses images and symbols of Christian iconography, comparing and merging religions, Gnostic gospels, hierarchies, angels, fallen angels and countless saints to comment on the human state and fragility.
A recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Zachary Brown, produces his first solo exhibition. The exhibition is produced by moxie DaDA in collaboration with Joan Barenbregge of Elan Fine Art Gallery.

...The Pittsburgh Art Blog
The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.
the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
