Artist Bren Corn exhibits at Loaded Joe’s in Avon

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado
Sepcial to the Daily

1. Vail Daily: What does art mean to you?

Bren Corn: Stimulation, expression, clarity, resolution, letting go, or actually a way to make money. The act of creating art clears my mind of things and at the same time fills it up.

2. VD: When did you know that you wanted to be a artist?

BC: Age 5.

3. VD: What kind of mood do you have to be in?

BC: All moods apply. Oddly enough to some, I don’t paint under the influence of anything except my thoughts. Not even music. It’s purely just a driven desire that strikes at random moments. Children, painting, romance, people, food, traveling, and living the life of a successful artist is constantly on my mind.

4. VD: Why did you choose the medium that you work with, or did it choose you?

BC: It has chosen me for now. It has evolved into a mix of so many ways to use it. I have also been a photographer “old school style” – i.e. manual. And I’m a printmaker as well.

5. VD: Describe your style.

BC: Expressionistic and vivid. Edgy. Emotionally applied.

6. VD: If you were to meet any artist, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

BC: Picasso. I’d love to sit, eat a taco and then smoke a cigar with that guy and get just a glimpse of even his thoughts in shadow. I’d want to get straight to it with him: his art, the way he conducted his dealings, himself and some personal hints of his love life.

7. VD: Where do you sell your art?

BC: My website is more of a showroom but there are a few pieces available online. Most of my work is now in the lives of collectors. This show at Loaded Joe’s in Avon consists of the few pieces I have saved just for this particular exhibition. These showings have become pretty exclusive. I am in multiple collaborations with architects, clothing designers, a set in Los Angeles, and one-on-one dealings with collectors. Pieces are sometimes given to special causes, including ones involving cancer or events for kids.
