"He wants his art to rot, fall apart, change, and ultimately disappear" - Pete Humes, All that Remains, Brick Weekly, September 21st edition.
In "Matter of Time" Birchett pushes traditional boundaries of contemporary art practices by taking the audience on a journey through time and space, introducing viewers to "the experience that is art," rather than simply focusing on the art object itself. Influenced by minimalist art forms and earth-artists such as Robert Smithson, Anna Mendietta, Richard Long, and Robert Morris, Brad explores a variety of art-making approaches including painting, photography, installation, audio, bio-art, and environmental intervention.
"Maybe the logical end of this artist's journey doesn't include a physical work of art at all." - Pete Humes, All that Remains, Brick Weekly, September 21st edition.
