Brooks Salzwedel’s works are natural and manmade structures disconnected from their usual surroundings or places in time. Using a self-created process involving graphite, tape, colored pencil, oil pastel, ink, and other materials, he places his work onto panels, small curios like vintage tin boxes or corroded pipe ends, and other found and re-manufactured objects. Each of his shaded compositions are haunted, dreamlike visions of otherworldly landscapes. Spruce Trees and weeds, mountains and fog, lens flare and ominous beams of light, obscured plane crashes and eerie abandoned trucks appear at once familiar and unrecognizable, and their inconsequential presence seems to become a space for rumination, challenging your relationship to their being.
