From Iowa, Brenton started taking art classes at Des Moines Art Center at age 6 where he was first influenced by modernist sculptors and color field painters. He graduated from Colorado State University in 2012 and studied sculpture, landscape architecture, and environmental science. Chuck’s technical knowledge is a result of the time he spent working for a fine art foundry between 2014-2019 and subsequently developed a proprietary color system for polished metal, concluding his transdisciplinary style of painting and sculpture in 2021. He has shown in Denver, Santa Fe, and Des Moines. Brenton has been featured in Daria Art Magazine and has recently obtained multiple awards for his achievements in sculpture.
“I aim to depict the duality of nature in the mountain west by using chaotic geometries and systematic minimalism, drawing inspiration from both the original structure of the habitats and the patterns of the organisms living within them.”
