Hebru Brantley returns to the expansive gallery space in Lacuna Artist Lofts for his third major solo show, Brothers of the Robbing Hood, opening Friday, October 12. The show will feature a full cast of Brantley’s characters in new paintings and sculptures, drawing influence from an array of pop culture icons, comic book heroes and story book characters. Brantley’s recent focus is to share energetic narratives—moments of reality from his life and the lives of his peers, mixed with fantastical fiction. Spray paint is at the forefront of these mixed-media illustrations, working in part to de-contextualize the levity of cartoon imagery, and bring a critical edge into the white cube.
The show will continue to be on view by appointment through December 2012.
