Brian Rochefort, 2008 Lilian Fellow
resident 2007-2009

Brian ROCHEFORT grew up in Rhode Island. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design, where he graduated with honors in 2007. He is the recipient of the 2007-2008 Archie Bray Lilian Fellowship.

"I intended my Rockstar Energy Gloops to be a commentary on the relentless commercialization of everything in sight, and the trend obsession that infects and saturates every facet of modern life. What is most important about my recent work is the form itself, and its interaction with the surface painting where I incorporated celebrity status, pop icons, tattoo motifs, graffiti, glitter, and the ubiquitous hearts and stars. Like an abstract narrative on a Greek vessel, these spray painted globular, suggestive forms tell a story about this time period in American Culture."
