Keiran Brennan Hinton at Beecher Residency
Born in 1992 in Toronto, Keiran Brennan Hinton received his BFA from Pratt Institute in 2014 and his MFA from Yale University in 2016. Brennan Hinton’s artistic practice primarily focuses on observation, intimacy found within the home and interiority. Starting with a limited colour palette, the artist employs a mixture of colours that exist in his daily life, delicately adjusting the temperature of the light or the saturation of the shadows. Finding beauty in the mundane, Brennan Hinton chooses to capture seemingly private and personal moments rooted in specific art historical references.
Brennan Hinton’s recent solo exhibitions include Ordinary Light, MAKI Gallery (Tokyo, 2022), Between the Woods and Frozen Lake, Nicolas Robert Gallery (Toronto, 2022); Day Breaks, Night Falls, Galerie Thomas Fuchs (Stuttgart, Germany, 2021); Towards Sentimentality, Charles Moffett (New York, 2021); and Una Finestra sul Cortile, Galleria Francesco Pantaleone Arte Contemporanea (Palermo, Italy, 2019). Furthermore, he has actively shown at institutional exhibitions, most recently; I am Here, Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces, at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, ON. His work has appeared in publications such as House and Home Magazine, Macleans Magazine, Forbes, Sharp Magazine and was listed as Artnet’s "5 Artists to Watch," in 2021. In 2016, he created a public mural in Chappaqua, New York, commissioned by The Katonah Museum of Art
