Brian Corr is an American-born artist living in Japan. He creates sculpture and large-scale installations which explore perceptual liminality as a means of facilitating contemplative experience. By activating light and shadow through the ordering of volume and void, his work seeks to embody a sense of the profound and the transcendent.
He is currently a PhD candidate at the Australian National University, where he is researching the aesthetic and philosophical elements of contemplative space in Japanese architecture.
Brian's work is held in numerous public and private collections throughout the world, including the national Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and the Toledo Museum of Art.
Brian is also a skilled glassblower with over twenty years of experience. He has taught extensively at schools including the Corning Museum of Glass, the Penland School of Crafts, the Pilchuck Glass School, the JamFactory, Namseoul University, Sydney College of the Arts, and the Australian National University.
After studying and working in Australia for nearly twelve years, Brian has recently been appointed to the role of Associate Professor at the prestigious Toyama Institute of Glass Art in Toyama, Japan.
