Brea Gilchrist is a North Dakota born artist that recently moved Rochester, MN. She began experimenting in the arts at the young age of 5 in her home of Bismarck, ND, already involved in classes outside of usual elementary school arts. Brea has been creating professionally since 2010, after graduating from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree, with an emphasis in Visual Arts, as well as an Art History minor.
Currently, Brea renders imagery of landscapes and human anatomy, but will also create works focused strictly on anatomical portions of the human body. By taking certain organs/skeletal formations out of the usual medical textbook perspective, and rendering them not only on a larger scale, but boldly detailed, Brea’s work makes anatomy more approachable to the viewer. Conceptually, she continues to render the universal human anatomy in its stripped down aesthetic so that it is approachable to all.
