For the past five years, Brotherton has been making “Killskreen” paintings. His body of work explores the material collision of paint with the conceptual idea of our culture’s ever increasing reliance on the digital screen. He mixes the language of abstraction with ideas of computer technology as a pathway to engage the viewer.
Marc Brotherton is an artist based in Atlanta, GA and is currently an Artist in Residence at the Atlanta Contemporary. He regularly exhibits his work in solo and group exhibitions at museums, art centers, and art fairs throughout the US. Brotherton has exhibited at White Columns, The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Hathaway Gallery, Day & Night Projects, Sandler Hudson Gallery, Causey Contemporary, and George Billis Gallery.
Brotherton has been reviewed in many newspapers, magazines, and on-line publications such as The New York Times, Creative Loafing, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Albuquerque Journal, Burnaway, ArtsAtl, dArt International Magazine, NY Arts Magazine, and Flash Art Magazine.
