About george brinner
My paintings are in private and public collections across the USA, Europe and Japan. Institutional collectors include the Houston Museum of Art, Tulane University, The Blaffer Foundation Collection, and the Hawaii State Foundation for Culture and the Arts. Selected for numerous juried shows including The Illinois Artist's Exhibition at the Chicago Art Institute, three Indiana Artist's Annual Exhibitions, and more than twenty pieces to the prestigious Annual Art Maui Exhibitions. I am one of only four painters selected for the first two editions of Hawaii's Schaefer Portrait Challenge and one of eleven artists whose work was chosen to be part of the singular 'Witness to Time' exhibition in conjunction with the art of Edward Bailey and the Bailey House Museum.
Artist Statement

From the small central Illinois farm town of Mason City, my formal introduction to the art making world came at Indianapolis's John Herron Art Institute. At Herron I was introduced to the technical concepts of two dimensional design by Loren Dunlap and affected by the artist's sensibility of Bill Crutchfield, experiences that greatly influence my approach to making art to this day. I was chosen by Dunlap to assist him in establishing the Blaffer Foundation's New Harmony, Indiana Roofless Church project in my final year at Herron before accepting a scholarship to Tulane University in New Orleans.
Abstract Expressionism was all the rage then, DeKooning and all that crowd. ( Helen Frankenthaler, an early member of that group, was one of my instructors and an influence on my work at Tulane's Sophie Newcomb). After Tulane, what was meant to be a brief visit to Maui turned permanent. I showed exclusively with Lynn Shue and her Village Gallery's for over twenty years until 2015 there before moving my studio to Phoenix, Arizona. Since the Arizona move, I have continued work on my Maui beach scene series, 'Sun Seekers and Beach Walkers'. In 2016 I began work on a series of paintings of the Arizona landscape and its people. Many of the paintings in this series that, as of this writing, numbers more than twenty large oils on canvas, depict the red rock landscape in the Sedona area and the Grand Canyon of northern Arizona.
