Working in stone, bronze and mixed media including wood, steel, rock, and string, Brian operates in a nearly constant state of outer and inner exploration. However, his love of materials began in earnest with an affinity for alabaster. In the early 2000s, he created a process where he cut alabaster and laminated it back together using colored pigments bringing a rainbow of new opportunity for creative expression. Later integrating wood and alabaster into such sculptures, he reveled in the technical challenges that came with carving a piece that had materials with three completely different textures.
Drawn to an unfolding of mystery, each step in the process of carving a piece is unplanned and intuitively guided. Invigorated by traversing the dimensions of form and space, he considers every medium and every piece he makes to be a teacher, facilitating the cultivation of fresh ideas and offering opportunity to find new ways of seeing. Through his art and interpersonally, he carries an intention for continued evolution of self and of his connection with others.
With over forty years as an artist, sculpture has provided Brian a means of survival from life challenges ranging from childhood trauma to MS to a cardiac arrest, but has also has sparked profound healing, acceptance and transpersonal experience. The universal nature of this heroic journey is infused in his work catalyzing and inspiring the healing potential, positivity and creative awakenings that lie within us all.
Brian is thrilled to invite friends old and new to visit his newly completed studio and gallery.
