Reed van Brunschot
Reed van Brunschot is a Peruvian/Dutch American Visual Artist, working with mixed media, sculpture, performance, installations, paintings, and video art. She studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and the School of Visual Arts in NYC. She has exhibited in the Netherlands, Brazil and The US and is responsible for the copper Constellations and Polarities, the school of gilded fish that swim through our Aquarium Room.
Her artworks take on displacement, daily life through the ‘transitional moment’, one in which a given situation suddenly and unexpectedly changes, be it in form or in sentiment. By building relationships between unexpected elements, through materialization, or correlation to the viewer, there is an emphasis on a dialog between the man, and the absurd object. Speaking in quotidian symbolism, her practice is based on themes of childhood, home life and all things ephemeral. You can find more of her work at http://reedvanbrunschot.com/!
