Brece Honeycutt’s series, b(RE)ce, is made from selected repurposed garments (shirts, sweaters, blazers, trousers & dresses) dyed naturally from plants gathered from the land around her studio in Western Massachusetts. On summer mornings, she collects morning glories, rose leaves and coreopsis, for example, and in the fall she harvests fallen leaves and barberry, and dries goldenrod and zinnias for winter use in her dyeing. The colors and patterns imprinted on her garments were once found on the forest floor or on the stalks of plants. Each b(RE)ce garment is a unique, naturally dyed work.
The photographer Monika Sosnowski came to my studio a few weeks ago documenting the interior and the exterior. Please find an excerpt from her blog post below and find the complete post with images on her website, monikaphoto.
“Recently I visited the studio of Brece Honeycutt, a visual artist whose work draws inspiration from nature and history. As an undergraduate at Skidmore College, Brece majored in art history and eventually pursued a graduate degree at Columbia University in studio art focusing on sculpture. Since then her artistic output has evolved beyond one medium and now encompases painting, drawing, book making and a unique vintage-couture line. Often combining elements from a range of genres, Brece’s work results in delicately elaborate installations. Entering her studio bespeaks of experiencing such installations.”

The beauty of Indigo is magnetic, drawing us toward it. It is not hollow for the mere richness and depth of its color offers a firm foundation to stand steady within its intoxicating visual drink. Dots, dashes, cosmologies; burn marks, rusted tones, twisted strands; grids, stains, topographies; chronicle the works by Christine Aaron, Beth Dary, Grace DeGennaro, Lorrie Fredette, Valerie Hammond, Jeanne Heifetz, Lotta Helleberg, Brece Honeycutt, Patricia Miranda and Paula Overbay
Curator Molly Ruppert has assembled ONE YEAR LATER, which features 52 artists (one for each week in a year) and work priced at $365 or less (for each day in the year).
See the exhibition on line or better yet go and view in person.

#CorrespondenceCourse (2015-2017) is a material exchange project between artists Abigail Doan & Brece Honeycutt. Doan states:
“Their artistic correspondence features mailings back and forth between the artists’ homes in the Berkshires and New York City (as well as to and from Sofia, Bulgaria, during summer of 2016). Materials include handmade postcards, stitched stationary, gathered materials from rural and urban walks, historic sewing patterns, hand-drawn charts, botanically dyed and pleated paper, as well as other modern ephemera. Their collaboration is continuous and ongoing and serves as an examination of modern and historic connections in their daily lives.”

James Panero reviews bewilder in the The New Criterion’s April Gallery Chronicle.
“At Norte Maar, Honeycutt has now gone back into her textiles and papers with additional interventions. In some examples, she has created free-form and hanging sculptures out of an assembly of paper prints and found objects—whimsical work that calls to mind the anthropomorphic scrap-metal sculptures of Richard Stankiewicz. In others, the introduction of thread, which she weaves into the linens, structures her compositions and serves as drawn lines. Here I found the white, undyed linens of her “winterfield” series most striking. By introducing shapes and textures distilled in deeply felt and spare abstractions, Honeycutt recalls farmland vegetation—as well as the “women’s work” that once stitched farm life together.”

“Artist and citizen naturalist Brece Honeycutt lives in Massachusetts, on a colonial farmhouse in the foothills of the Berkshire mountains. Fascinated with the history of her home and the surrounding land, she reads handwritten antique diaries at the local library, gathers old textiles, and creates natural dyes from the plants she collects on her morning walks. During her walks, she closely observes changes to the landscape, making notes that become the basis for new projects. On the occasion of her solo show at Norte Maar, Honeycutt has compiled the following list of ideas and influences that inform her work.”
