Bryan Nash Gill ("Gill") worked in many media--installation, sculpture, painting, drawing and printmaking--addressing issues relating to art, nature, artifice and perception. He passed away unexpectedly in 2013.
Gill created forms out of wood and other natural materials that had origins in the ecology of our native woodlands and forests. Gill's relationship and interpretation of nature created another vision within each piece that redefined beauty and order. Seen together as installation, we reconsider the fragile balance that exists around us.
Gill exhibited widely throughout the state of Connecticut, including Paesaggio Gallery, the New Britain Museum of American Art, and the William Benton Museum of Art at the University of Connecticut. Nationally, he exhibited, among others, with the Brunner Gallery in Louisiana, the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Massachusetts and the Greene Gallery in Florida.
He was the recipient of two individual artist grants from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, as well as being honored with the Individual Artist Fellowship from the Greater Hartford Arts Council. In the mid-nineties he was part of a group exhibition at Real Art Ways, entitled RAW Space.
