Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto continues its program of exhibitions exciting to us at AM with local boy Brian Donnelly’s second solo exhibit with the gallery opening on November 5th, 2010. “Obedience & Savagery” picks up where 2009’s “Blasphemies, Monstrosities and Other Perversions” left off, with Brian’s unique grafting of animal appendages onto human forms forming the basis of the work.

Brian’s beautifully rendered figurative works hang in a background environment of negative space, which establishes an indication of the duality that the work of this artist conjures up; the title of the body of work reinforcing a similar polarity seemingly reflected within the depiction of conjoined man and beast. Take a look at some sneak peeks of the work in progress in Brian’s studio after the jump.
