The Carlos Gallery in the Nabit Art Building at University of the South is pleased to present My Journey to the Stars, a video installation by Nashville artist Brent Stewart.

My Journey to the Stars is a 4-channel video installation looping ominous black cubes in various interiors and rustic landscapes that appear to be floating or hovering while they slowly spin around. The tone of the work is formal modes of the modernist cube presented as a surreal alien visiting from another universe with sublime tension hidden under the surface.

Brent Stewart is a multi-media artist, whose works include painting, performance, photography, and video installation. He is a Nashville native who received his MFA from Goldsmiths College, London in 2003.

In 2010, his work was included in the LA based Robert & Tiltons gallery show: "Projections" by "31 of the most influential filmmakers of our time" and selected in 2010 as Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film." His photography has been featured in the Nike sponsored exhibition and published edition: Being True, "22 Years of American Youth." His short film, The Dirty Ones, premiered at the

2009 Sundance Film Festival, which was produced by film auteur Harmony Korine and the French fashion designer, agnés b.
