"There is a small tradition in art of taking jabs at corporate mascots. Mickey Mouse is a big target, etc. Ronald McDonald is popular too and I thought I’d take a stab at it. Maybe do something a little more gravid with it.
I was at first very influenced by the term “Breaking News.” That term is everywhere now and completely overused. News director larvae have learned that it turns heads and boosts ratings so “breaking news” opens almost every edition of local, televised news coverage. I had planned even on a small series of Breaking News paintings and that may still happen. I do have some other images in progress." - John Brosio
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
was born in Pasadena, California and received a BFA from University of California at Davis. Prior to that he attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
The tornado in his work represents a perfect blend of mythology and science. He find it easy to imagine it being alive and unpredictable, to view it as a god or agent thereof. One sees this mile high banshee choosing certain targets and skipping others like a jittery reaper.
Being witness to the birth, entire life, death, and interim behavior of a tornado was for Brosio witnessing a creature greater than human and hearing the footfall of a giant. And akin to a human, after all the wonder and speculation, it is returned to a mass of animated dust.
