Wills Brewer

April 2024

Wills Brewer (b.1986) is a fifth generation Oklahoman who divides his time between Texas and California. He currently works in research-based, collected materials to explore the social, ecological, geological and systematic histories of place—specifically, place over time. He has mainly worked in ceramics (earth) for the past decade. As a tribal member raised outside of the community, he has had to do his own research on his histories, being circumstantially tied to a geographic region and the tributaries that it comes from. He focuses on the idea of “The West” and the seemingly endless constructs that generates. Mainly through through observation, research on previous documentation, and engagement, he explores the relations and narratives that make up communities, which he expresses through his own photography.
