Cortnee Brush

I am a multidisciplinary visual artist, following in the footsteps of contemporary sculpture and feminist art aesthetics. I have developed my practice to include sculptural fabrication techniques, performance, and video. My inspiration comes from my lived experiences as a woman and artist. I am in a constant state of unlearning and relearning. Due to the intimate level I speak on, I regularly use my body as a medium, through life casting or performance. The resulting collection of self-portraiture works as a tool of critical self-exploration of identity, autonomy, and femininity.

In addition to my art practice, I pursue being in service of the community I live in through art education. I have a passion for grassroots organizations and non-profits centered on social justice, sustainability, and the ability for all people to realize their creative potential.
