Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's April Artist of the Month:
John Brickels
John Brickels is a ceramic artist who lives in Lowell, Massachusetts. He was raised in Akron, Ohio, and attended the University of Akron. Every morning, he would ride along the streets of Akron to school and would watch the many houses and factories pass by in his rear-view mirror. With each building he passed by daily, his fascination with architecture grew and sparked the inspiration for his works." As an art form sculpture lets you design four sides instead of one. I like that."
He sculpts architecturally-themed sculptures that show the effects of time, weatherization, and entropy. He also creates artwork that reflects factory and machine imagery of his childhood Rust-Belt home, Akron, Ohio. Since moving to Lowell 5 years ago, John has enjoyed sculpting mill buildings using red terracotta clay.
John has exhibited his works internationally and showcased his work with the Smithsonian Institute, the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, and the Springfield Museum Group in Springfield, Massachusetts. The City of San Antonio, Texas, commissioned John to create sculptures of the Spanish Missions that were presented to visited dignitaries such as President George Bush Senior, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain, Placid Domingo, and Pope John Paul II. He is a member of the Whistler House Museum of Art and has been on exhibition there.
