Helen Day Art Center News - Teen Art Studio November 18th (FREE)

posted at 3:14 pm Fri Nov 14th, 2014 by (WherezIt_Staff)


Guest Artist: Brian Zeigler

Tuesday, November 18th
FREE for ages 11-18


Brian Zeigler is an artist living and working in Montpelier Vermont who received his MFA in 2011 from Vermont College of Fine Art. Brian's studio is in Montpelier and his work has been shown widely in Vermont and Nationally.
Brian's art deals with Vanescre which is the Latin term for vanish, to pass quickly from sight, or to move from a visible to an invisible state.  The process of making drawings and then documenting them digitally then erasing them to make another drawing on top of what was erased and repeating the process of drawing, documenting and erasing until the final drawing is made up of remnants of earlier drawings which ghost like imagery remains, suggesting that the past and the present co-exist. The physical erasure of form and line invite a dialogue between what was and what is, an opening through which we are invited to entertain new questions and less certain outcomes.
Brian's collages have a similar process, He makes figurative drawings on paper using ink, then cuts them up and reassembles the pieces, erasing the figure and making the final piece into an all over abstraction. He documents the drawings digitally before cutting them up and, like the erased drawings, what was once physical then only exists digitally.
You can see Brian's work at his current exhibit, Vanescre at Lyndon State’s Quimby Gallery, which will be up until December 2nd.
