Brian Doyle

Brian Doyle’s artwork questions the notion of the common experience. His videos, installations and photos reveal the subtleties and strangeness found within the collision of cultural and natural phenomena. What emerge are semi-fictionalized documentaries that gracefully uncover realities just beneath the surface of our recognition. Recent themes include information overload, technology as progress substantiated, and the future and past colliding into a transfigured present.

Doyle’s award winning videos have been shown on television, in film festivals, and in museums and galleries around the world. His latest group of work,
Yestermorrow, Current, and The Light roughly use the form of a developing storm to suggest a story. Recent shows include a solo installation of Current at Vox Populi, Philadelphia, and screenings of The Light on channel thirteen’s "Reel New York" on PBS, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Chicago and New York Underground Film Festivals.

His videos can be found in the video file of Pierogi 2000 in Brooklyn, NY and Argos in Brussels, Belgium. Doyle graduated with a BFA from Florida State University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Sculpture Department. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
