“Brent’s paintings are about life,” says curator Katherine French. “While they might include elements of landscape—actual flowers and earth covered roots coming proud of the surface—these lush and emotive paintings go beyond that. Pulsing with energy, they are about creation and creativity—and our potential for growth.” – Katherine French, 2015 Walter Feldman Feldman Fellowship Juror
