Dark Matter Paintings


The Moorpark College Art Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Los Angeles artist Gary Brewer.  In his seductive, abstract oil paintings, Brewer seeks to capture the sense of mystery and interconnectedness of life forms throughout time.  Inspired by a range of elements in the natural world from micro to macrocosms, the paintings reflect Brewer’s study of the world around him.  In his current series, Dark Matter Paintings, Brewer muses on the invisible, gravitational material known as dark matter.  The paintings consider how this lattice like material, which is being hypothesized to play a pivotal role in the formation of the cosmos, can serve as a metaphor for the structure and weaving of our life experiences. 

Gary Brewer is a self-taught artist, living and working in Los Angeles. He exhibits his work extensively throughout Southern California.  Most recently Mr. Brewer had a solo show at The Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in Lancaster and exhibited in group shows at Walter Maciel Gallery and Loft at Liz’s in Los Angeles.  To learn more about Gary Brewer, please visit his website
