I can't stop thinking about the David Byrne collage-painting by Wayne Brezinka that's currently hanging on the second floor of The Arts Company. Just out of this shot is a companion piece of St. Vincent, her hair a mess of cassette tape ribbon and yarn. But the Byrne piece is much more iconic — washed out colors, bushy white hair and a straight-ahead gaze bring to mind Warhol, but Byrne is giant enough to get away with that connection without seeming derivative. Brezinka models the face on a spacious canvas, and for all his use of cords, wires and fuzzy eyebrows, his technique is surprisingly subtle. Take a closer look below.
