CURT BRILL Biography

Curt Brill chanced upon sculpture as a means of expression while taking a pottery class at Cornell University. After receiving a B.S. in graphic and product design from the university, he embarked on a career as a sculptor and gained a national reputation for large-scale raku pottery. Since then, Brill has experimented with such varied media as plaster, metal, foam, and telephone wire. In 1980, however, he poured his first bronze and discovered a fascination with the medium that he has since made his own.

Brill's female bronzes are caught in relaxed poses, which the artist rapidly sketches as his models naturally sit, stand, or lie down. He then creates a small-scale model in clay or wax, making sure to retain the immediacy of the original sketches. While he casts bronzes from these original models, Brill is best known for the larger-than-life-size figures that result from scanning the originals to Styrofoam and, from there, working a proportionally accurate model out plaster, clay, or wax. The final results are sculptures stripped of heroism, narrative, and romanticism. This realism, due in part to the artist's experience as a drug rehabilitation counselor and a professional in state-run mental institutions, strives to find the beauty and grace in human imperfections, not in spite of them.
 

CURT BRILL Description

Curt Brill has shown widely throughout the United States and Japan. His work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at such venues as the Amakusa Community Center (Japan), Macchi Community Center (Japan), Cornell University, Tokyo Museum of Art, and Tucson Museum of Art.
 

CURT BRILL Statement

My search in the visual arts is for the hidden human spirit - that small part that makes us each unique, yet finds us a common home. In my pieces I first search for movement, then I search for the humor to help carry me through the piece, and - in completion - I search for serenity.
