Brian J. Magnuson is an artist and educator who has developed and uses a variety of mediums.
Age and solitude are the threads that run through the heart and soul of Brian's work.
The world is full of objects, and none of them are alone, yet all of them are in fact solitary. The tree in a forest, the person in a sea of humanity. The lone rider or the lone red umbrella in an ocean of white sand.
We fear the idea of being alone, yet it is often being solitary that we fear the most. Standing out.
The fear, the terror, the horror of being remarkable. These images celebrate the remarkable, the ones who stood out and lasted.
At the end, when all is said and done, this journey we must take is, in fact, solitary.
