Brian Schader Biography

(American, b. 1963)

From the first display of his paintings to the public at age 19, Brian knew his path as an artist had been determined and from that day forward, he has dedicated his life to the creation of things that bring interest, intrigue and beauty to our surroundings.

Largely self taught, Brian's work has taken many forms through the years. Brian chose his profession almost 30 years ago and has worked diligently to articulate his feelings and ideas through the mediums of sculpting, painting, printmaking, photography and poetry.

Brian is a member of the National Sculpture Society. His work has been featured in numerous newspaper articles, magazines both local and national. He has had One Man Showings through galleries in Scottsdale, Sedona, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Southwest Art Magazines Calendar featured Brian's work two years running as well as inclusion in the Phippen Western Art Museum's Calendar.

Brian's work has been collected by individuals and corporations for decades. He's currently spending all of his time sculpting what he likes to refer to as "lasting works of substance."

Brian's sculptural works are exclusively monumental in nature and suitable for indoor or outdoor display. The inspiration behind many of Brian's sculptures is narrated by poem or prose hand written by the artist, then richly etched into the solid copper plaque accompanying the piece.

With a curiosity for Japanese Puzzle Boxes, Brian always tries to conceal connections or attachment points within his sculptures, and when it is necessary to reveal hardware or a weld he prefers them to be part of the art by making them bold or exaggerated.

Brian Schader Statement

I don't believe creativity should be restricted to any one medium. Daily, my mind is filled with ideas of how I might convey my thoughts and beliefs. I believe in the importance of affecting my viewers in a positive way. Like most creative types, I've experienced my share of struggles in life, but choose not to support or chronicle past difficulties but rather to create beauty.

I'd like to create art that outlasts my great, great grandchildren. With that in mind, I've humbly come to understand the concept that nothing lasts forever. I strive to educate myself in matters of environmental impact on exposed sculptural elements, thus carefully selecting materials that are not only esthetically pleasing but that will provide as many years of enjoyment as possible for those viewing it... I also believe in recycling as much as possible when it comes to my art, I much prefer to utilize sound, used material over new.
