Across mediums my art deals with examining and amplifying subtleties in larger works , most often through montage, collage and repetition. Building anxiety from juxtaposing sounds/images from disparate works (my own work and elements drawn from pop culture) to create new narratives or to illuminate darker subtexts easily overlooked in the original works.
“Local artist/musician/fortune-teller Corey J Brewer makes slide collage prints using film negatives and transparencies from home movies, mainstream cinema, educational films, etc. in 35-mm slide casings. He manipulates the slides using paint, bleach, and other wizard tools—the resulting pieces are appealingly eerie and very worthy of your bloodshot eyeballs.” - Emily Nokes, The Stranger.
"Armed with just a microphone and a magic suitcase of lights and sound, Corey J. Brewer delivers his creepy croon over expansive basement beats and eerie synth gurgles. Think Nick Cave doing the In Dreams scene from Blue Velvet while Boards of Canada tries to break out of Frank's cellar." - Dan Paulus, City Arts.
