Brian Fleetwood is an interdisciplinary jewelry artist currently based in northern New Mexico. Brian uses material and technical experimentation to create three-dimensional organic forms. Drawing from traditional stories that emphasize the intimate connection between all living things, past experience working in biology, and a personal interest in the connection between mind and body, Brian uses his work to explore parallels between the way ideas and living organisms grow, spread, and evolve. Brian holds an MFA in Craft and Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University and is currently assistant professor in Studio Art at the Institute of American Indian Arts.
