Just participated in the gallery stroll at the Poor Yorick Studios and was taken by the work of Brian Blackham. His still lifes are beautiful and from a distance seem finely wrought, but up close they have a rawness and power that is pleasantly surprising. This is due to the fact that they are executed with the palette knife. His lighting and color palette are exquisite, as is his use of lost edges. Lovely.
His studio is located in the Guthrie Building on 2nd South in SLC.
