Layered Landscapes Made of Graphite, Tape, and Resin

LA-based mixed media artist Brooks Shane Salzwedel assembles beautiful natural landscapes, often featuring some form of majestic architecture like bridges and oil drilling towers. The artist primarily works with graphite, tape, and resin to produce these layered images, giving each one a three-dimensional feel. The separation that defines the difference between foreground and background is expressed through a sheet of fogginess. A dark, sharp silhouette of the setting stands out against the muted shadows that serve as the backdrop. There is a haunting, surreal aesthetic to Salzwedel’s work that combines nature and man-made architecture. 

Selected works are available for purchase as prints at the artist’ shop.
