Brooks Salzwedel

I've been a fan of Brooks Salzwedel ever since I hear his interview on the Art for Your Ear podcast. He uses graphite, resin, and colored pencils to create scenes of a desolate world.

To me, his work has a vaguely photographic quality. I think I saw his work before I heard the interview and learned about his process, and I first thought they were manipulated or collaged photographs, coated with encaustic wax. But I was wrong, and I think I love his work more for that.

His work has so much depth!

You can listen to his interview on the Art for Your Ear podcast, and see more of his work on his website.

Brooks currently has a show up at Johansson Projects in Oakland, CA.
