Bri Chesler is a multidisciplinary artist focusing on three dimensional design and sculptural installation. During her undergraduate studies, at the Kansas City Art Institute, a strong interest in transparency and molten media led her to explore glass. Brought to Seattle, Washington by passion, she participated in workshops at Pilchuck Glass School and worked in production studios to gain an understanding for glass. Chesler’s work is known for its nontraditional approach, combining different glass techniques with other media. Drawing from the wild and erotic character of the natural environment her work reflects on cultural obsessions of beauty and their relationships to internal anatomies. By fusing similar elements found in biology and botany she creates forms that ‘flirt’ with the audience, exploring ideas of intimacy and desire. Bri Chesler was recently featured at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Washington and was a 2019 Pilchuck Emerging Artist-in-Residence.
