A few Sundays ago, AM decided to swing by Brett Amory’s Oakland studio while he was preparing for his upcoming Lazarides solo entitled Waiting 101 at the Newcastle location. This show marks an evolution in his creative process, as he now carries his iPhone everywhere he goes and is able to immediately capture a moment whenever he feels inspired (whereas before, it would take months to compile images to use for his work). One thing we noticed was that all of the work for the show was square shaped, which happens to be the format of Instagram, his photo app of choice (username: brettamory). This will be Brett’s last show he prepares for before he packs up and moves to a warmer studio with taller ceilings (which will hopefully result in some large scale paintings).
Waiting 101 opens next month on April 20th. Check out some photos Gary Sexton took during our visit after the jump…
