Brie Ruais

Brooklyn based artist Brie Ruais sculptural works are a combination of found/collected objects and embroidery, weaving, and wax casts. Her works reflect a desire to connect with the community and the natural and metaphysical world and many of her works play on the interconnectedness of living things through the use of universal symbols.

More about her process from her website: “Working with embroidery, drawing, sculpture and found objects, I compose both floor and wall based installations that evoke environments and shrines. I use the aesthetics of spiritual practices in Shamanistic cultures to root the pieces in nature. The inherently labored, hand-made quality of embroidery, carved wood, and altered objects, and their arrangement with items from nature, stirs ideas of the sacred and ritualistic. For me, embroidery is a personal meditation on the parts of the whole, the pieces that make up a story, and an investigation into a historical craft of storytelling.”

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
