Virtual Artist Talk on Zoom | Wesley Brown | Life Into Work

Join Wesley Brown as he walks through his evolution as an artist. Brown will speak to how he uses the momentum of personal experiences to drive his work, the ways he has thought about creating, and how he approaches the studio today. His work over the years has ranged from functional to sculptural, and his most recent work has pushed the boundaries of form and materials to develop a body of large scale sculptural works.

Wesley Brown lives and teaches in Dayton, Ohio. He has a bachelors from Bowling Green State University and a Masters from Indiana University. From undergrad to the completion of his masters, his work has grown not only in scale but also in size. Brown’s work has changed over the years but he has not stopped seeing clay as a material worth grappling with.

Artist Statement:

I create work to capture both physicality and dynamism.
I act upon the clay with passion to create works that memorialize struggle, trial, and triumph. Using the malleability and immediacy inherent to clay I build my work in an uninhibited practice. I want my work to capture an ethos familiar with hardship possessing a dignity and reverence found through a resoluteness to continue.

I have a schooling in the making of functional wares and sculpture and have worked and studied as an artist in such places as Indiana, North Carolina, and Jingdezhen, China. I hold an Associates of Art from Sinclair Community College, a Bachelors of Fine Art from Bowling Green State University, and a Masters of Fine Arts from Indiana University.
