This was inspired by a vivid dream. I dreamt of a gigantic wave rising in the distance while I relaxed at the beach. I felt a sense of urgency and of 'the calm before the storm.' Rather than a depiction of my dream, however, I painted a single subject to convey this. "Inside the Wave" places the viewer in the trough of a wave with a wall of water cresting overhead and light shimmering all around.
Brandon Cooper (b. 1987) Born into an artistic and musical family, I began my career as a musician, studying at New York University and Rowan University. While at school I took up painting as a hobby, practicing during free time in my dorm (and driving my roommate crazy). My hobby grew until, once finished school, I took up painting full time. Being a trained musician, my paintings have a musical quality, full of vibrant color and thick texture, with lines and bold brushwork singing little melodies across the canvas.
