Hyperrealistic Portraits by Bryan Drury

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 19 Nov 2013
1

This morning we feature the strange the hyperreal paintings of New York-based artist Bryan Drury. Stemming from a desire to challenge the conventions of traditional portraiture, Drury carefully selected affluent members of society to sit for him, and rather than acquiescing to expectations of flattery, he exploits the power of oil paint to describe their corporeal flaws as precisely as possible. Finding liberation in this reversal of patronage roles, Drury focuses on the organic quality of the flesh and shows the animalistic side of humans that we so commonly attempt to conceal.
