Brooks Salzwedel – Modern Soil

Brooks Salzwedel - Los Angeles Electric Isle

There is a strong sense of polarity in the works of Brooks Salzwedel. This opposition is the element that holds the art together both in content and process. The contraposition of nature and technology exists in these seemingly serene floating islands. The methods employed by Salzwedel in the creation of these environmental pieces is in itself toxic. Resin is layered with graphite to produce the ghostly effect found in the bulk of his catalog.
