About AWBrody

I am a visual artist working in the following media:

1. All of the traditional printmaking media with specialties in woodcut and intaglio

2. Painting with special emphasis on large-scale plein air oils from wilderness areas and works combining the landscape and figure

3. Carved and forged non-ferrous work on an architectural scale which rely on the anisotropic reflectivity that derives from the carving process scientific and artistic visualization in a virtual environment

4. Drawing with an emphasis on the dynamic figure, I try to capture what it is like to be in some special place, be it in the wilderness, or inside my own imagination. My goal is to be honest and accurate to the spirit while retaining a similar honesty and accuracy in terms of depiction.

Every large project I have undertaken has come in on time, within budget, and with no excuses. I honor my contracts.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Look for someone with a broad range of expertise and the capacity to work under diverse conditions. Check out their record of completed projects to see if they were done on time and within budget. See what other professionals in their field think of their work and their work ethic.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. I paint in the wilderness and not from photographs for the same reason that someone would generally rather touch their loved ones than look at a photograph. I am continually learning how to respond to difficult environmental conditions rather than give up and go home.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. A customer should engage the professional in a dialog before engaging in a final contract. That contract should include an image or model showing the artwork in context as well as a timeline for project milestones and payments.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. My commitment to plein air painting takes me to more extreme locations than most. I make graphic images that derive from a visceral appreciation of wilderness and my very long experience representing the human body in action. My work in carved metal is unusual in dynamic appearance, scale and expressive quality,

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I was one of those kids who always drew. My father was a composer who spent a part of every day working on his music. I learned from him that an artists is someone who does the work regardless of any financial considerations. I discovered that art was the one area of endeavor where I would do almost anything regardless of difficulty.

Q. Describe your most recent project, what it involved, how much it cost, and how long it took.

A. In the Talkeetnas is 4' h x 10' w acrylic on carved bronze for the High School in Talkeetna, Alaska. It cost $20,000 and took me 2 months of full-time work spread out over a 6 month period. The basis for the imagery was a 72"w x 44" h oil and alkyd painting I did high in the Talkeetna mountains several years ago on a fly-in wilderness painting trip.
