Indianapolis-based conceptual artist Brian McCutcheon uses video, photography, and sculpture to explore the relationships between play and masculinity. He will follow an idea rather than using a signature technique or image and often represents them with different methods. This necessarily directs him to follow a path of learning, both in concept development and material usage for every project.
LOCATION: City Market
I have been particularly interested in motion because of the way it gives a sense of time, creates an unpredictable pattern, and demonstrates a history of growth or destruction. I have represented my ideas about movement through the use of motors, electronics, and the mechanisms I develop.
LOCATION: Southeast Corridor of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail
As an artist I work in the service sector. I transform and rebuild familiar objects so that new questions can emerge relating to what I see and what I know. When an object is both new and familiar, there is an opportunity to reconsider one’s relationship to the world as we know it.
LOCATION: Eskenazi Health
Building larger furniture and furniture-like objects from small, rough, discarded bits of wood, I sketch pieces together. There’s intensity and an odd sense of worth in something that has been cobbled together from smaller parts. I don’t hide the connections, and I leave traces of attempts and failures to make something work-an odd map of the logic and processes used to assemble the piece.
LOCATION: White River State Park
Through ecologically minded processes, forms, and materials, Kimberly seeks to convey the importance of harmony in nature and society. Quality craftsmanship and the use of properly harvested and reclaimed wood promotes sustainable living. The forms used in her functional furniture are direct representations of the natural world and bring the playfulness of nature into everyday utilitarian objects.
LOCATION: Riverside Park
If life were a photo, then my artwork would be the film negative, seeking to explore those aspects in our society that have been ignored or forgotten such as history, lynching, misogyny, slavery, and suicide. By printing these forgotten negatives, I give voice to the marginalized and disregarded aspects of our society.

I am a professional studio artist and designer working in Indianapolis, IN. My business, PDO Design, operates with my fine art production in tandem with my design production. Working with expertise in various styles, my skill set intersects with many different materials used traditionally and innovatively. My versatility yields creative and unique facets incorporated into my projects.
Project One is a digital design / fabrication studio, founded by Adam Buente and Kyle Perry. They are focused on incorporating parametric software, CNC technology, and reactive systems in their work. Their varying skill sets and flexibility have produced projects at a variety of scales and with a wide range of materials. Their process remains connected and fluid, producing highly detailed end products as they engage the work from start to finish.
LOCATION: Horizon House
My creative work is interdisciplinary, collaborative, and incorporates a wide range of media. It is mostly project-based and outcomes-focused, embracing individual narratives and community identity in equal measure to beauty, form, and function. The end products follow rigorous conceptual frameworks yet present themselves through simple and accessible pop and folk aesthetics.
LOCATION: Hawthorne Community Center
As an artist with an extreme dedication to making my art, I am able to work in many mediums and styles, allowing me the flexibility to communicate visually in any way that suits the ideas I am trying to portray. The underlying content of all of my works is sociopolitical and humanistic.
