Brett Wallace
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Cobble Hill



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work explores the relationships between what we see and the interior, non-visible experiences we feel. I have a keen interest in transformation that extends from medium to medium and from two-dimensional to spatial concerns. The visual language I use includes traces of things found in the world and my studio – blueprints, networks, maps, diagrams, screens, books and other things I come across or have lying around. The drawn or cutout forms of one work may make up the positive forms of another to create a new, negative space. I combine these traces of physical world artifacts with abstract fields of color, lush paint strokes and forms that are thoughtfully considered. The cutting, drawing, painting, collaging and sculpting to create form and space in my work emphasizes the state of regeneration they are in. I am not interested in a final state, but rather capturing the renewal in life between innocence and experience. In this way, my work revels in the tension between physical states and the invisible, divine world. -Brett Wallace
