The Artists of Industria exhibit also features the introduction of Tucson artist Brian Carlton’s fusion modeling technique. Brian’s style is born out of realism, but has recently taken a turn into the realm of abstraction. His latest work is a form of abstract realism he developed in the vein of such artists as Chuck Close, where shape, structure, and realism is apparent from a distance, but close examination reveals roughly executed regions of color in total open form. In this technique, the illusion of form is constructed by the forced fusion of fluid colors directly on the canvas. He calls it fusion modeling.
Brian Carlton grew up in the Tucson. He is an acrylic painter and an advocate for the arts in the community. Brian is the Vice President of Industria Studios, A Non-Profit 501(c) (3) Corporation dedicated to the promotion of fine art to the Tucson community.
