Colin Brant’s luxurious, color-drenched, paintings and drawings present an inquiry that is both reverent and skeptical, offering examinations of landscape as personal, politicized, and perpetually evolving historical space.
Brant’s paintings have been exhibited at Jeff Bailey Gallery, Hudson, NY, Lucien Terras, Inc., Adam Baumgold Gallery, and the Dumbo Arts Center in New York City, Beth Urdang Gallery in Boston, Philip Slein Gallery in St. Louis, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Great Barrington, The Westport Arts Center, in Westport, CT, The Berkshire Museum, in Pittsfield, MA, among others.
Brant is the recipient of two fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, a Pollack-Krasner fellowship, and a residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. He has taught at Williams College, SUNY Albany, and the School of Art and Design at Alfred University, where he was also Director of the Fosdick Nelson Gallery. BA, University of California at Santa Cruz; MA and MFA, University of Iowa. Brant divides his time between North Bennington and Fort Greene, Brooklyn, and has been a recurring visiting faculty member at Bennington since Fall 2011.
