ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett are Calgary-based artists and collaborators creating whimsical interactive installations out of artificial light and other mediums. Exploring themes of public interaction, art in unexpected spaces, community collaboration, and play, the duo began collaborating on light works in 2010. Best known locally for their interactive sculpture CLOUD (Nuit Blanche Calgary) Brown & Garrett cultivate a parallel practice creating installations in alternative spaces and pre-demolition buildings – most recently WRECK CITY and PHANTOM WING. To date, they have created three separate CLOUD sculptures in Calgary, Moscow, and Chicago, and exhibited artwork in the Czech Republic and the Netherlands, with upcoming dates in Kentucky and Singapore.
SOLAR FLARE is Caitlind Brown & Wayne Garrett’s newest artificial light-based sculpture, and they are pleased to present the piece in their home town of Calgary, Canada.
When not working on light sculptures, Wayne Garrett is a professionally trained musician playing in several Calgary-based bands, most notably The Bitterweed Draw and SURF KITTIES! Caitlind Brown works sporadically for various cultural organizations (GIRAF, CJSW 90.9 fm, etc) and recently co-founded a collective of “Artist-Curators” creating wildly popular temporary art spaces in pre-demolition buildings (WRECK CITY and PHANTOM WING).
