Participating Artists - Brian Giberson
Brian believes artist statements are best written in the third person and under the influence of a strong dose of showman's privilege, allowing the statements to stand a little taller and toddle around on stilts like broken wind up toys. He believes artist statements should contain at least one out and out whopper of a lie, but not identify which one it is.
Brian has been a professional artist for his entire life, working in and on: illustration, animation, computer game graphics, sculpture, art instruction, art direction, painting, experimental techniques, metal smithing, jewelry design, and digital art. He will likely be adding to this list in the future. All of these past disciplines contribute to the unique art he produces today.
In his mixed media work, Brian is fascinated by natural processes such as decay, the flow of water over uneven topographies, erosion, and oxidization. He likes to use such unpredictable processes to add a touch of design chaos to his work.
Brian strives to make the experience of his work a collaboration between his thoughts and emotions, using abstracted partial narratives, that speak to the viewer's perception and imagination. His goal is to touch on archetypes and emotional spaces, making the viewer more invested in the experience by filling in the blanks and becoming a part of the process, creating art to reflect on ... art to dream on ...
Brian has had his work featured in books, magazines, museums, podcasts, websites, blogs, art instruction books, vanity publishing scams, and many private collections.
