Brian J. Narcomey

Finding Peace
August 2 to September 12, 2009

"We are blessed to share our prosperities with joy, finding our peace through what has been given by the awesome creator and artist of us all." ---Brian J. Narcomey

Brian J. Narcomey is an enrolled member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma. In the spring of 2009, Brian graduated from Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma with a Bachelor's of Fine Art (BFA) in Graphic Design. Brian grew up in a creative environment where family members on both his maternal and paternal sides were artists. More than any other, he attributes his oldest brother, Richard Narcomey, with inspiring him artistically.

An admirer of Creek artist Jerome Tiger, Brian studied Tiger's paintings and was intrigued by the artist's use of detail. Working in his preferred medium of watercolor, Brian uses pen and ink to anchor the flowing medium with precision detail at specific focal points to give form to the field of color. Through this process, concepts are conveyed from his perspective on life. Reflecting on his past and looking to the future, Brian is able to create a piece of artwork that he describes as representing freedom of mind and soul.

The artist characterizes his work as traditional. Brian's art is about his heritage and family, the circle of life, and a spiritual dimension where he is most affected by word and thought. As Brian describes, producing a piece of artwork involves "feeling through memory," conceptualizing, and using exact detail to create the idea he wants to convey. As a graphic design artist, Brian applies digital manipulations to his original imagery to enhance and infuse his images with energy and excitement.

Brian's work was featured in a solo exhibition, Looking Within, at the Museum of the Great Plains in Lawton, Oklahoma in 2006. "I am grateful for all artists because it is like a family to me, we learn and share and surely we grow in love because we all share a big canvas as our hearts convey our individual styles. Respectfully, '"All My Relations."'

Prices for artwork featured in this exhibition may be obtained by contacting the Oklahoma Indian Arts and Crafts Cooperative gift shop, located in the Southern Plains Museum, 1.405.247.3485.
