This showcase will feature the 'Holy Magnolia Sports Club' Collection by Baltimore's Gifted artist Brian Seymore. Holy Magnolia Sports Club is a series of texturized compositions in dedication to strong female figures that have and continue to deeply impact Brian's life.
HMSC was birthed from the artists' internal conflict. with the direction his career was going in. In 2015 Brian became overwhelmed by void. Empty. What should he be doing at this point in his career? His mind, his hands, his gifts were idol and fighting to be expressed.
HMSC was Brian's therapy and guided him through both healing and revelation. Each painting includes a silhouette of women representing strong female influences throughout my life. It's an ode to personal reflection, an ode to the powerful woman and an ode to self-love.
