Brian Alfred’s work Golden Gate (2014), is part of a new series of animations and ‘digital paintings’. Only a few elements of the composition are animated, with the intention for Golden Gate to “evoke a certain peaceful feeling” with the beholder.
Alfred is known for his style of flattened and usually depopulated scenes that are rendered in bold, two dimensional patterns. He is concerned with the effect public imagery has on individual perceptions of reality, and the impact of contemporary media and technology on cultural perceptions of representation.
Alfred lives and works in New York.
