Magic Hat Presents

Art Space

Brendan Bush

November - January / Opening Reception, Friday, November 2nd, 5-7pm


Born between generations, Brendan Bush is a technologically inclined luddite. A product manager for a digital marketing firm by day, he paints as a way to unplug and re-connect to the physical world. Brendan is a recovering misanthrope, aspiring biophiliac and seeker of self.

Brendan lives in Burlington, VT with his partner Rachel and their dog Brewster.


My paintings explore color and movement as a form of deeply emotional expressionism. I eschew the concept of a consistent aesthetic, instead choosing to let experimentation with process, application and immersion in mood drive an ever-evolving style.

I create art to convey and examine my uncomfortability with the fundamental dualities of freedom and confinement, of acceptance and rejection , of clarity and confusion, of anger and exaltation.

About the Art Space


The Magic Hat ArtSpace was introduced in 2012 on the Artifactory tour ramp and showcases local artists and their work. Selected artists will typically be featured for two months. When a new artist is chosen, we will hold a reception on the first Friday of that month to coincide with Art Map Burlington’s First Friday Art Walk. All of the artwork displayed in this space can be purchased directly from the artists.

If you are interested in showing your work at the ArtSpace email Katie.DeWitt@magichat.net
