and contact info
As a filmmaker and visual artist, Brian Doyle
questions the idea of common experience. His films, installations and
photos examine the collision of cultural
and natural phenomena. Often developed through the lens of a developing
storm, his quasi-fictional documentaries gracefully uncover realities
just beneath the surface of our recognition. Themes include information
overload, technology as progress substantiated, and the future and
past colliding into a transfigured present.
Doyle’s award winning films have been shown on television, in
film festivals, museums, and in galleries around the world. Screenings
include the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, Reel
New York (WNET New York, Channel Thirteen, PBS), International Film Festival Rotterdam, Tribeca Film Festival,
and Slamdance. His videos
are distributed by Annexia and Vtape.
He graduated with a BFA from Florida State University and an
MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s
Sculpture Department. He lives and works in Beacon, New York. Doyle is a 2009 fellow in Film from
the New York Foundation for the Arts.
