Neue Welt is pleased to present the work of Knoxville, Tennessee based artist Brian R. Jobe. Jobe's studio practice is focused on sculpture and installation. His most recent work collages material into assemblages utilizing signifiers of natural and manufactured landscapes. The materials are stacked or held in compression, but without the use of hardware or adhesives. He desires a sort of inevitability to be felt within the viewer’s experience as they consider the material’s history and stream of consciousness associations. He is inspired by the act of construction and the space between reductive minimalism and human touch.

Brian R. Jobe is an artist, educator, and non-profit director based in Knoxville, Tennessee. His solo exhibitions have been on view at venues such as Mixed Greens Gallery (New York, NY), The Contemporary at Blue Star (San Antonio, TX), University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY), Alabama Contemporary Art Center (Mobile, AL), and McNay Art Museum (San Antonio, TX).

He has permanent, outdoor sculptures located at the Western North Carolina Sculpture Park (Lenoir, NC) and Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum (Knoxville, TN). Jobe is also a founding member of the Land Report Collective and exhibits regularly with the group.
