Pierce Brosnan unveils deeply personal paintings in 1st solo art exhibit

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Pierce Brosnan is publicly unveiling his most vulnerable role yet, hosting his first solo art exhibition. The James Bond actor has been painting since he was a young teen, but picked up the hobby again in the 1980s. It’s been intensely personal. One of Brosnan’s first paintings as an adult, “One Dark Night,” was created while his wife Cassandra Harris was being treated for cancer. Harris died in 1991, and Brosnan’s current wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, encouraged him to show his work publicly. The actor, who just turned 70, calls the show a birthday gift. The exhibit “So Many Dreams” is showing in Los Angeles through May 21.
