Interview with Brian Biedul

Q)Something about you…what you want…
A)I am a sculptor of space and more precisely, the gestalt space that exists inside the mind of the viewer.
Q) What are your main goals when you create?

A)I am striving in my work for a sense of completion, that the work feels whole.

Q) Do you rule by any tendency in your creative work, or you only follow what comes in your mind?
A)I take an idea and put it through my personal filter, if it comes through I follow it to it's own conclusion.
Q)How has the internet and your website helped you spread your artwork to a wider audience?

A)Referring people to my site helps them understand my work and I hope gives me an audience outside the local gallery scene.
Q)How do you define your style and how would you describe your art to someone who could not see it?
A) I articulate space and the style changes with the project

Q)What materials do you use to realize your creations?

A)Right now I am working with oil on canvas but I have used fire, water, rope, steel, wool, vinyl and vegetation.
