SANTA ANA, Calif. – From April 19, 2018 – May 17, 2018, mixed media art by Brennan Roach will be on display at John Wayne Airport (JWA) as part of JWA’s Community Focus Space Program. These works can be viewed on the Departure (upper) Level near security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

“Each of Mr. Roach’s pieces tells its own story, with underlying themes of self-reflection that are revealed in the intricacy of his work,” said Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairman Andrew Do.

Brennan Roach is inspired by the themes of consciousness and environment. Specifically, his window pieces are threaded together as a collage from separate moments in his life, most of which involved his drawings on napkins at bars or restaurants. His doodles came from playful thoughts that seemed meaningless at the time. As more drawings developed, the relationships between the various doodles began to appear and a composition came into view.

“I make a line on paper, it's there, it stays there, I react to it, I add more, I react to that, I feel the lines, the shapes, what it could be, what it wants to be,” states Mr. Roach.

Mr. Roach pursued a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California State University, Fullerton after discovering a passion for the visual arts while creating artwork for t-shirts and flyers for his band, Time and Energy. He continues to pursue a career in music with the band while working on new material in his studio at the Advertising Arts Building, one of the last standing art colonies in Orange County.
