“Sittin’ in the morning sun, I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes. Sittin’ here resting my bones, and this loneliness won’t leave me alone.” Like Otis Redding, Brett Amory left the South and came out West, finding himself pondering, among other things, the big city and its expanse of solitude.

Singular Gallery is pleased to present Anonymous #7 by artist Brett Amory. The concept behind Singular contemporary art gallery is 'one artist - one artwork', with the aim to develop a direct dialogue with the place where it is located, the Croatian town of Pula. The artwork displayed in the gallery can be observed from the street through the large gallery window - with every show, the window opens a view for passers-by into worlds of the imaginations of the international artists that exhibit within.
