About the Artist:
Brennan Hubbell takes an expansive knowledge of diverse materials and understanding of context to tell a story about what it means to be creative and alive in current times. This ability shows up in his large public sculptures in places such as “Tree Pose” in South Park, San Diego, and “Yoga Tree” in Solana Beach, CA., which are made out of a mixture of cement and styrofoam. The experimentation of materials and technique which Brennan employs comes from the broad exposure to art, and artists and the art world of his youth. The renowned and prolific artist James Hubbell is his father. When Brennan entered Saint Olaf College chemistry was his path but the liberal arts ethos of Saint Olaf had its influence. Creative writing and Art classes became a place for Brennan to synthesize diverse fields. His understanding of context and setting can be seen in his designs at the Manzanita Gathering Place in City Heights, CA,; High Tide Park at Kimbol Park in National City CA; and “The Back Lot” at ARTS, National City. Brennan Hubbell was awarded the 2013 San Diego Art Prize in emerging artist category. He has shown work at the Athenaeum Library, the Contemporary Art Fair and Sparks Gallery
Brennan participated in several Pacific Rim Park building projects in locations around the world.
