Jeffie Brewer

Artist Statement:

I make things. 

I show people how to make things. 

I have an insatiable desire to create, to explore, to understand. 

I work with my hands. 

I work with my head.

My works intention is to provide just enough information, allowing for a narrative without delving into total non-representationalism. Leaving room for interpretation as well as a little mystery, I hope, adds to the viewing experience. My work in graphic design and general fascination with pop culture are heavy influences on my work. 

Artist Bio:

Jeffie Brewer grew up in a small, rural town in East Texas. The son of eccentric junk yard owners, he learned to spot beauty in the mundane, developed an array of industrial skills and discovered he had a knack for drawing. Those early revelations have influenced his artistic trajectory ever since. Now Jeffie is married to the love of his life, Angie, whom he credits with saving him from impending doom. Some of his interests include teaching, golf, dogs, plants, the letter z, tulips, the tango, long runs, the color teal, clouds, rust stains on concrete, clouds, small violent birds, good stories, using the word "sans" and lying in the sun.

Jeffie earned an MFA in sculpture and metals and an MA in sculpture and painting. He also holds a BFA in drawing, printmaking and jewelry making. He taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate level art classes from 1998-2019, from sculpture to typography to expressive drawing.

Since his first exhibition in 1998, his work has appeared in both solo and group shows across North America and in Mexico and Japan.

In addition to his academic career, Jeff has utilized his artistic talents as an illustrator and designer for an advertising firm (Point A Media, 1999-present) and as the founder and president of a design and fabrication company (Orange Cat, Inc., 2002-present). He also designed, fabricated and built his own home in 2006.
