In Fuentes’ words, Triptychis “a masterwork in its scale, technique and inverted syntax”. Three individual panels measuring 38″ x 78″ each make up Triptych, a virtual collision of modern representational methods, old master influences and the artist’s personal history.
Of particular interest here is an unusual chance for the viewer to scrutinize Bremer’s ink and paint application technique unobstructed as these large scale panels are presented without framing or glazing. Triptych represents over two years of research and production. The base of this piece is a backlit portrait of the artist’s son in profile. The original negative was scanned and imaged on digital c-print material and mounted on (3) 38″ x 78″ dibond panels. Bremer then interpreted Rembrandt’s The Angel Appearing to the Shepherds in various ink mediums and acrylic paint directly onto the surface of the original prints.
