Armory Art Salon Features Pip Brant And Duane Brant “Our Back Yard”

Featured Armory Art Salon Artists, Pip Brant and Duane Brant work independently and collaboratively on socially provocative installations and works in many media. Both grew up in the West and Mid-west and say that their experiences have profoundly influenced their work.  Armory ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists, in a relaxed setting. The discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. This is an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and sharing useful resources. The Rickie Report shares more details and some photos of Pip and Duane’s work. We applaud Art Salon facilitator, Elle Schorr, and urge you to attend this learning/networking opportunity.

Pip Brant  “Cavalry Stitch”

 

 

Pip Brant is primarily a fiber artist, and usually works on themes regarding social and environmental issues. Her works have been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad. Her Battlefield Re-enactment Series are embroideries that she says are a stage in a process of distancing the memories of battles fought in the 19th century, and now are full of suppositions and decomposed histories.  In her Hasenblut Series, (German for rabbit blood), Pip says she is “trying to honor the rabbit’s life with images made with its life-blood to create images of longing and perhaps a memorial to the animals that lent their life to mine.”

Pip has a BFA from University of Montana and a MFA from University of Wyoming. Since 1999, she has been Associate Professor in the Department of Art and Art History, Florida International University, Miami. She grew up and was educated in five different American Indian reservations, mostly Sioux, in the Dakotas and Montana, where her father worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. She states “They have a disconnection unlike any other place in the United States. They are vestiges of American Manifest Destiny and other bad deals”. She says “My summers on a German Immigrant Family farm, in South East North Dakota, also did their best to seek out a recreation of the connections of life and death and absurdity… Growing up there did result in a close relationship with the cycles of life. These include raising my own food. Art production and farming have been strong links in my work.”
