Brian Rochefort’s sculptures flaunt the anxious states of disorder and chaos in the face of the viewer, reminding us that the Horror Vacui exists.
The seductive messes and goo that spread out in our lives, regardless of our attempts to contain them, are the insistent presence at the forefront of the work. Freezing untidy, murky moments, the works scream at us to pay attention and embrace the inchoate that looms. Grimey, unclear ideas turn into lovely liquid like globs and clatter moves toward clarity. The vessel simultaneously acting as canvas and laboratory.
Born and raised in Rhode Island Brian attended the Rhode Island School of Design. He was awarded the Lillian Fellowship from the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana 2007-2008.
