Brooks Shane Salzwedel

Brooks Shane Salzwedel’s work focuses on natural and unnatural landscapes disconnected from their usual surroundings or places in time. Evoking feelings of desolation, loneliness, lapse in time, and confusion of places. Through these terrains: ancient trees, decaying flora, and icy mountains obscure long forgotten places and objects, at once familiar and unrecognizable, creating a space for rumination that challenges the relationship to their meaning. Hidden within the trees and brush one will find oil rigs, fire pits, pills, rainbows, logos, planes, and other various, carefully placed images which make the pieces personal and create a greater narrative when linked together. Using a self-created process gives an even further feeling of land’s depth and inclusion in these worlds.
