Brett Andrus Artist Bio:
A Colorado native, Brett Andrus studied painting and art history at the Savannah School of Art and Design before returning home to Colorado in 2001. Andrus divides his time between a career in the financial industry, co-ownership (with his wonderful wife Lauren) of the award-winning art galleries The Modbo and S.P.Q.R., directing and teaching at the newly formed ModboCo School of Art at Ivywild, working as a musician (in projects that include Waterbear, The Men of Deep Throat, Team Laser Wolf, and Headhum), and producing as a disciplined artist. Over the last fifteen years, Andrus has exhibited his work in Santa Fe, Denver, Atlanta, New York City, New Orleans, Trinidad and Colorado Springs. Brett Andrus is a narrative figurative painter. Interweaving representational realism and emotive kinetic abstraction Andrus’s figures feel like they live partially in a dream, catching a moment right before something is about to happen. He seeks to connect with the viewer on a sensual and emotional level. His intention is to set viewer in the role of both witness and voyeur– sharing a clandestine moment with the artist’s subjects. Influenced by Egon Schiele,Kent Williams, and Jenny Saville. Andrus uses his fascination with realism to find his contemporary voice within the constructs of the classical female form.
