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.
Brian was recently awarded a PhD from the Australian National University. His research examined the aesthetic and philosophical elements of contemplative space in Japanese architecture.
His 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 working and studying in Australia for nearly twelve years, Brian is now serving as an Associate Professor at the prestigious Toyama City Institute of Glass Art in Toyama, Japan.
