New York, New York (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

“America in Color,” a solo exhibition by DC-based artist Brian Dailey at the Stephan Stoyanov Gallery in New York City, creates a rich visual of the American political landscape with color-coded portraiture.

For the past two years Brian Dailey has traveled throughout the United States organizing impromptu photo-shoots with Americans of all political persuasions, in major cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, New York, and in rural southern, mid-western, western, and northeastern states.

The objective of the "America in Color" series was to capture individual portraits of the American electorate, including those with no interest in politics or voting. “The project explores the intersection of American politics, the individual character, and the role of perception in how we view and understand the vital components that shape the political process,” says Dailey.

Allowing individuals to define themselves and express their own identities within a relaxed atmosphere, Dailey asked each individual to pose in front of a color background that represents their political affiliation: blue for Democrat, red for Republican, grey for Independent, green for the Green Party, and yellow if they don’t vote or participate in the political process. Subjects were asked to strike a pose that best represents their character or identity.

The portraits were then arranged on a series of 4’ x 8’ panels, resulting in a vibrant mosaic of colors that reflects the regional diversity and character of the American electorate. The exhibition also features a selection of individual portraits and a digital loop of more than 1000 portraits shot by the artist in 20 states.

Brian Dailey received his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and Design from Otis Art Institute (now Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles) in 1975. Throughout the 1970s, he worked and exhibited in L.A., staging performance art pieces at the Roger Wong Gallery and the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art. In November 1977 “Vice”--his last performance work of that period--was staged at LAICA and featured in the art magazine "High Performance." In 1980, Brian became involved in government policymaking and corporate management. He returned to art full time in 2008 and maintains studios in Woodstock, Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley. His work uses various media including the photographic process, digital film, and oil on canvas. Brian serves on the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies. He is also a member of the Collectors Committee of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Brian Dailey's "America in Color" has been developed over the past two years through dozens of one-day photo shoots, including shoots in galleries such as Rhona Hoffman (Chicago); Honor Fraser (Los Angeles); and I-20 (Chelsea).
