Trained as an architect, Brian employs the processes that go into making a building – forming a mass, sculpting space, manipulating light - to create art. The pieces are shown here deal with the intersection of architecture, painting, and sculpture. The areas of overlap between these disciplines become ripe for exploration. What traits do they share? How can one inform the other? And how can the boundary between them be blurred?

Additionally, he is interested in the analogy of the city as a living organism. Much like living things, cities grow, contract, evolve and change. The sculptures that he creates hang on the wall like paintings but include volumes that burst out of the two-dimensional plane, suggesting organic or crystalline growth, mirroring the growth of the city.

A reception will follow.

The Hartnett Gallery is funded by the University's Students' Association and the Venture Fund from the Office of the President.
