My Name is Brian Coates and I am a Painter in the Greater Philadelphia region. I consider myself a chaser of light and a symbolist. I look for those elemental properties of light and color that are often missed by many people and those elements that can be used as both a figurative image while also holding a deeper personal symbol for me. I am telling a story of my recovery after mental breakdown and my rebuilding from it. My work typically will play with concepts of duality, be it in contrasting complimentary colors, reflective elements in a painting, or repeating patterns echoing each other. My symbolic concerns are usually personal ideals and are often not easily recognized by the viewers of my work. For the better part of the past year and 3 months, I have been reacquainting myself to my Art and my love for Art. My work and life now focus on color, movement, and contrasts as I chase a better way to portray the flickering elements of light.

I gotta get a better camera to capture the painting stream. To do this I am looking at a VIXIA HF R800 but that also means I need a capture card. I believe a Elgato HD60S should work. Ideally, I would like to upgrade both cameras, but the one to focus on my paintings has to be my top priority.
