Brian Prugh (pronounced pru:) studied philosophy at the University of Chicago and art and art history at the University of Iowa. In 2006, he “reverted” to the Catholicism of his youth and has been engaged ever since in the search after a true understanding of what makes art good in both his visual work and his writing. He has exhibited work in cities across the US and his work is in private collections nationally and internationally. He has published essays in The New Criterion, Dappled Things, Genealogies of Modernity, Fare Forward, Lydwine and elsewhere. After living off-grid on a small sailboat in Florida for the last six years, he and his family recently relocated to Alaska.
