The layered, cloudy intensity that abounds in Brooks Salzwedel's work is incredible. Brooks recently sent me images of new work that you see here. His combination of shapes both from the natural and man made world leave me completely impressed. Numerous cranes among clouds hovering above an island seem to only make sense in his beautifully murky worlds. Be sure to check out how he has reinterpreted tin boxes. Crazy. See the tins and more of his work at Black Maria's Gallery site.
