Louisiana-native Brian Guidry’s The End series comes from his interest in the alchemical transformation of materials and the forces that control the phenomena of the material world.
Brian uses a specific color palette sampled from the landscape/ environment and of “natural” sources- (mostly flora): reflections from water, festering storm clouds, young fronds, sugar cane, exhausted foliage, flowers, lichen and soil. His works are, in some sense, a recording/ sampling of physical phenomena.
