Our AiR in June and July Brice Garrett gives insights into his artistic practice

A very warm welcome to our Artist in Residence in June and July Brice Garrett !Brice Garrett is an American artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Traditionally trained as a metalsmith, his work ranges across disciplines and media, culminating in sculptures, wearables, installations, and participatory projects. 

Brice received his MFA in “Jewellery + Corpus” from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Sweden in 2012 and a BA in Jewelry + Metalsmithing from San Diego State University. 
He currently teaches jewelry, metals, and sculpture at Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design, and Brooklyn Metal Works.

Brice Garrett about his work:
“I think about the body and its relationship to objects, and how/why we position ourselves around the things we collect. I’m especially attracted to adornment and other material things we interact with, pay attention to, and bring with us every day. I use these objects as a source to think through ideas of preciousness, memory, value, and labor as they shape our everyday lives.”
