Brett Flanigan currently works out of a studio in downtown Oakland, CA. His background in science can be cited when acknowledging underlying themes of natural order/disorder and his obsession with creating patterns and algorithms within his work. Similar to the Oulipo movement among writers and mathematicians, Flanigan habitually devises a set of self imposed rules or constraints relevant to each project, which are often bent or broken in a moment of clarity or carelessness. His unique process is a defining factor to the resulting work, which commonly manifests itself in the form of paintings, 35mm photographs or large-scale murals. Brett has spent much of the past few years traveling within the US and abroad, gaining perspective and influence from the people he has met along the way.
