Artist Statement:

Brett’s work is based on energy with natural forces and the elements. He creates painted surfaces such as canvas or aluminium, site-specific installations, live performance paintings, photographs and video compositions. His art draws equal inspiration from scientific visualisation and traditions of geometric abstraction found in sound healing.

In a world full of digital technology and mobile devices, Brett exposes his audience to blue light, digital technology and mobile device engagement. Brett has removed the physical artwork and replaced it with a QR code to represent the cause and effect of being a cancer survivor. The question is what leads to all our illness and interrupts our circadian rhythm?
