About Colleen Brewer

 
 
  • Biography

    My work is mainly inspired by nature, creatures and animals, both dead and alive.  I find I am drawn to what some may find disturbing or macabre, animals and insects that others would not deem ‘cute’.  Unsettling the viewer is something I enjoy doing as well as challenging a person to question their own reasoning for finding the subject matter so repulsive.  The images are intertwined with things that disturb and confuse me, political ideologies, social interaction, development in the western world, the lack of in the rest.

    Colleen Brewer (b. 1985 Essex, England) studied BA Design for Film and television at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham (2004-07).  Selected exhibitions include: Red Dawn, Brick Lane Gallery, London (2012). Art Beat, Studio 73, Brixton, London (2013).  Oxford International Art Fair, Oxford (2014).  Jerwood drawing prize exhibition, Various UK locations (2013 - 2014).  Urban art fair, Brixton (2014, 2015 & 2016). Long listed for 2012 Society of Wildlife Artists award.  Short listed for The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013,  and has featured in, and designed the front cover logo for Scout London Magazine. She lives and works in Bristol.
