Born between generations, Brendan Bush is a technologically inclined luddite. A product manager for a digital marketing firm by day, he paints as a way to unplug and re-connect to the physical world. Brendan is a recovering misanthrope, aspiring biophiliac and seeker of self.

Brendan lives in Burlington, VT with his partner Rachel.

Artist Statement

My paintings explore color and movement as a form of deeply emotional expressionism. I eschew the concept of a consistent aesthetic, instead choosing to let experimentation with process, application and immersion in mood drive an ever-evolving style.

I create art to convey and examine my discomfort with the fundamental dualities of freedom and confinement, of acceptance and rejection, of clarity and confusion, of anger and exaltation.
