Dates of Residence: 
Apr 20, 2009 to May 15, 2009

Brian received his B.A. in Studio Art from Humboldt State University, and his M.F.A. in Visual Arts from Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts. He has served on the faculties at several institutions, exhibited his work throughout the United States and Europe, and has work included in various international collections. 

Recent work has involved the exploration of objects as residue, a documentation of time. He believes that, "Though my work has physically taken many different formats in terms of its final presentation--from prints and paintings, to installations and video, to revisiting again the object itself--regardless of materiality, residue is always the essence of the work. Acting as a physical diary of sorts, the remains speak volumes about my personal exploration, referencing historical aspects and utilizing contemporary mindsets."
