Brandon Secrest

"I consider myself an object maker — a three-dimensional object maker. I don’t want to limit myself to that, because I know there’s so much technology out there that could help me express ideas. But I like making physical objects, and big physical objects. I like things that look like I could grab them with my hands and throw them on the ground. They have a presence like another human being has a presence."

"My work investigates the validity of physical structures in our environment, the cultural structures that support them and the related agency of humans in relationship to these interlocked systems. Themes encompass investigations of fixed and transient viewpoints, various types of division and continuity, and the intersection of art and the utilitarian object."

Brandon is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Cleveland Ohio.
