Populated Areas

Brian Dewan is one of Catskillís most beloved and admired artists and multi-instrumentalists. He makes films, drawings, musical instruments and is a regular reader of original poems at 394 Spoken, the monthly poetry reading series in Catskill.

Brianís art work is represented by Pierogi gallery in New York City. His I-CAN-SEE filmstrips have been screened at The Whitney Museum Of American Art, The New Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, The Tang
Museum, Modern Art Oxford and The Museum Of Jurassic Technology. All of the images in the filmstrips are
ink and watercolor paintings or ink and marker drawings.

His published audio recordings include Tells The Story, The Operating Theater, Words Of Wisdom, The Hunting Of The Snark and Ringing At The Speed Of Prayer. Dewan performs narrative songs, collected historical folk and popular music, sung with accompaniment on electric zither, autoharp or accordion as well as instrumental music for organ, musical stones, electronic instruments, bells and percussion.

The Kaaterskill Fine Arts Gallery is thrilled to start 2019ís exhibition program with a solo exhibit of Brian Dewanís work. Populated Areas is a collection of imaginary portraits, landscapes and habitats. Sometimes a being is the subject and the habitat is background, sometimes the habitation is the subject and the beings are ornamental. There is plenty of free play between the animate and the inanimate. Is it animal or mineral? These beings are not concerned with distinguishing between the two.
