Wendy Brusick Artist Bio:
Born in 1956 and raised in central Connecticut, Wendy Brusick left New England for the Midwest to pursue an art education at Valparaiso University (BSFA 1978). After graduation, she settled in Chicago for six years before moving to Philadelphia to attend Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (Certificate Program 1989). In 1992, she returned to her east coast roots and currently maintains a studio on the upper floor of a century-old house in Cranston, Rhode Island. There, beneath arched windows overlooking a quiet neighborhood, she makes detailed drawings and paintings. Embracing surrealism, she presents curious, highly personal images that challenge the viewer to consider the implausible and encourage symbolic association on a variety of levels. There are stories to discover in compositions that seem more strange than whimsical, and in some cases decidedly dark, illustrating favorite themes such as memento mori and the battle between nature and culture.
