Fort Wayne, IN
Oakland, California-based artist Brett Amory unveils a bold new body of work and an installation at FWMoA. The installation will be built during the month of November with public welcome to watch him work, with a new body of paintings based on the people and places in Fort Wayne unveiled November 5.
Amory’s inspiration for this project is Fort Wayne’s past, present, and future, which may also serve as an observation of the nation as a whole. Amory’s installation will have layers of growth and failure with undertones of industry, family, and heritage. The installation will speak through the language of architecture, and Amory will also use the structural anatomy of Fort Wayne to create a 30-foot structure reminiscent of the buildings and sites common to our city.
