Gasp! That’s the sound I made when I saw some of this work, by California-born artist Brooks Salzwedel, when I was in LA a few weeks ago. These images are gorgeous, but it doesn’t do them justice if you can imagine that! They are layered and layered, and then there’s some resin, and more layers, and graphite, and tape, and and and… sigh. Stunning.
ps. Brooks’ work is part of a pop-up show, titled “Home As Art”, curated by Good Eye Gallery … that opens TONIGHT in LA!
When: Wednesday, December 4 / 5pm ~ 8pm
Where: deasy/penner&partners . 200 S Los Robles Avenue . Pasadena, CA
pps. I might have three of my pieces in this show too. Maybe.
