Brian Curtis Stonehenge Series I&II
UM Gallery Wynwood. Miami Florida July – Sept. 2013
Miami Art Reviews.
Brian Curtis is the head of under graduate studies in Painting and drawing at University of Miami, Coral Gables. The Stonehenge Series is a departure from his life and figure paintings.
The ancient (6500yrs) megalithic stone circle of England set against a tropical sunset may seem like a remarketing tool of artistic juxtaposition but a few days after meeting the artist ,looking west from Miami Beach’s Green Diamond towards Miami’s downtown skyline. “how much alike the set sun on these new Miami megalithic towers are to Brain’s recent series”. The use of the ancient symbol “Stonehenge” has proved to be very universal this side of the Atlantic. Miami has its own mini circle, dating from a similar time in man’s history, the symbol has always been associated with the psyche,spirit and meeting place.
Brian Curtis’s Stonehenges are keys to personal spaces,each sky appealing to each destiny, the brush work delivers only as much as is required with light’s fluidity and life’s color against stone cold realism. The paintings are accompanied with mythical tales, ancient stories and ancestral traditions of ritual. It would be easy to imagine any of these paintings being a subliminal morning flash or returning welcome in many people’s homes.
Brian has succeeded in fusing two specific joys into one language, he is after all a professor of Fine Art and his use of universal symbols to evoke emotion and mind is in complete tradition of the visual language of symbols that defines Fine Art from art in general.

The MDC Arts Program is called an incubator for regional talent and experience for students and professors alike.
The permanent collection is part of the education program. The donation of artworks has expanded significantly, and the international exchange program is now operating, bringing exhibitions like Goya, Beyond Borders, Salvador Dali, with projects like Miami-Canary Islands, Miami-Berlin, East-West, the Miami Biennial, the Miami Photo-Fest projects, the incorporation of the Freedom Tower as a museum-cultural center has placed the MDC and it’s stewardship of the Historic Landmark Tower in a prominent national position to bring great interest. The combined effect of these efforts are already significant cultural references for further growth in our regional, state and international visual dialogues.
