Meredith Brickell’s work draws from architectural forms, historical narratives and elements of the physical landscape. This work is informed by particular sites, especially those that reflect the impermanent nature of places and the ways that these places are continuously shifting and being redefined.
For the last 5 years, Brickell has been the project leader for the House Life Project, a grassroots initiative based in an abandoned house on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. Brickell also presents work in national and international exhibitions and has been an artist-in-residence at the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center, (Denmark), Watershed Center (Maine) and Threewalls (Chicago). Brickell holds a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a Bachelor of Art and Design from North Carolina State University and completed the Core Fellowship program at Penland School of Crafts (NC). She is an Associate Professor of Art at DePauw University in Indiana.
