Harry Brereton’s combination of classical and contemporary

Aside from jumping out of apartment windows, artist Harry Brereton combines immaculate classical modeling technique with very contemporary themes and technologies to create incredibly provoking and likable artwork. Brereton’s body of work consists mainly of paintings, graphite drawings, sculptures, and digitally drawn pieces that seem to hold subtle resemblance to the amazing works of Urs Fischer. The artist compares and contrasts throughout his oeuvre. It doesn’t take long to see this when the viewer sees his Michelangelo’s David compared to a stacked birthday cake, titled, Contraposto. This theme is also evident in the artist’s especially brilliant use of highly detailed and naturalistic modeling of some of his figures’ faces compared to their highly abstracted and sometimes nondescript body features and forms. Brereton’s bold and pastel palette make his work pop and pull the viewer into his works’ details. Explore the fantastic body of work below!
